I am a grad student at UCLA and currently live with two of my classmates and a good friend of mine in house in LA. I spend most of my time on campus reading papers, blogs writing MATLAB codes, teaching or playing sports. In my free time I like to go to the mountains to hike, play tennis on numerous courts at UCLA or west side of LA. Recently I started rock climbing but it probably wont be my favorite hobby. I always wanted to try surfing but have not got a chance yet. In the winter I like to go to the mountains to snowboard and if there is not enough snow I can almost always go to the beach to play volleyball or just relax. I love SoCal!
