How did the study contribute to your career?

What was your overall experience at ISS?

The experience at ISS is one of the best experiences in my life. I have met a lot of people from over the world and we have become good friends and good network.  The professor s and staff at ISS were very helpful, and made our time at ISS so memorable.  Whenever I face difficult problem later in my life, I always remember what my supervisor (Dr Roger Tangri) told me, “Just break your problems into small pieces”.  That always works!  In my feeling, ISS is not just a school, it is a family.
