Hi, Iím Guo Chen, a first-year graduate student in the Physics Department
of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Before coming to the States,
I obtained a Bachelorís degree in Materials Science in 1988 at Sichuan
University, and a Masterís degree in Physics in 1995 at the Graduate School
of University of Science and Technology of China; and then worked in the
Department of Physics at East China Normal University for four years.
I became interested in Biophysics research a few years ago when I attended
talks given by researchers of Biology and Biophysics. I do
wonder how one physicist may do when he does Biology. In the coming
semester Iíll do a 1-credit research work with Prof. Giaever. For
long-term goal, I plan to earn a Ph.D. in Biophysics.
