How did you discover Hopkins and why did you decide to apply Early Decision? I was attracted to this university and became to look up much information on the internet. I found that this is just the place I really admire. At JHU, I can cooperate with other potential classmates to finish many biology projects and I can follow biology professor  to continue my research of Parkinson‘s.

If you could teach one class at Hopkins, what would it be? (already exists or invented by you!) Calligraphy. In my spare time,I always do that. Actually it is not only a way to cultivate taste of art,but also it can make me calm so that I can concentrate on my biology projects and even have some new ideas.

What book, album/song, or TV show has had a profound influence on your life? The Selfish Genes. This book make me rethink chivalric spirits and during the process of thinking I have some new ideas about the genes as well as society.

What crazy invention would you love to design? A bioinformatics method which can conduct normalization according to the background of RNA-seq
