Why Amy loves working in research:
For as long as I can remember, my life has been driven by a single question, “why are things the way they are?” Being a researcher not only allows me to answer that question, but also enables me to apply solutions that will make the world a happier, healthier, and better place to live.
Life outside of research:
Amy really loves traveling and adventures with her two young daughters. She once rode a 40- pound Mao Era bicycle 100 miles cross China’s countryside arriving at Tangshan where she was greeted, fed, and cheered on by many amused locals. She then gave the bike to a nice man who looked like he could use it then took the bus back to her apartment at Hebei University.
