I was born in Taipei, Taiwan, in 1975 (now you know my age!). My family moved to Singapore in 1982 and I spent more than half my life (so far, that is) in Singapore. In December 1996, I came here to Richardson, Texas (which is a city north of Dallas) to attend the University of Texas at Dallas. I completed both my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computer Science last year (2001) and just started on the Ph.D. path this Spring. Before this, I was actually an Electrical Engineering major at the National University of Singapore. What happened? Well, I partied too much and studied too little. Also, I was more interested in CS than EE. And for those of you who might be interested (e.g. looking for people from your alma mater), I was from Keng Seng Primary School (grades 1-3), St. Margaret's Primary School (grades 4-6), Raffles Girls' Secondary School (grades 7-10), Raffles Junior College (first 3 months of grade 11) and Anderson Junior College (the rest of grade 11 and grade 12). I have a wide range of interests and this website only explores some of them. If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to email me at carol "at" I used to update the website frequently, but it has been more difficult to keep up now with increased responsibilities at school and work, among other stuff. However, I'm extremely grateful to my friend Mike Galgano who revamped my whole site with his talented design abilities. Thanks Mike!
