"The more cheese, the more holes. The more holes, the less cheese. Therefore, the more cheese, the less cheese." ---Introduction to a Math Problem Set

I can't remember when I fell in love with math or how it became almost like a habit. Sometimes, I like it abstract and classical. Math is a new way of thinking and a language of its own: one needs to find the right connection that brings a problem to a seemingly irrelevant one, and challenge the most fundamental concepts most people have taken for granted. Other times, I like it concrete and modern. With the basic tools of mathematics, one could simulate experiments, efficiently achieve data accuracy up to 16 digits, and convincingly demonstrate the impact of certain social policies.

I am very excited to become part of USWIM, a supportive community for women with passion for math, and I am hoping to reach out to more women interested in math within and beyond MIT community through USWIM.
