Computational Science Student of the Month – Weiyang “Ryan” Lin

I was born in Zhejiang, China, to parents, Zhenxiong Lin and Yuqian Huang. I was the youngest of five children, after four older sisters. As a teenager I had broad interests in mathematics, science, literature, and basketball. In college, I narrowed my interests to mathematics and chose the major of Information and Computing Science. There I was exposed to interdisciplinary studies of applied mathematics, computer science and statistics. There I also met Chao “Jessica” Wu, who became my wife later in 2012, after two years and seven months of cross-Pacific relationship while I pursued graduate study
