I was born in Singapore. My parents came from China. My mother was born in Fuzhou and my father was born in Shanghai. They migrated to Singapore separately, got married, and I was born. I have two siblings, both younger brothers.
I was born again when I was a middle school student, received Christ and became a born-again Christian. I was baptized while at middle school.
I received my kindergarten education at Nanyang Kindergarten, my elementary education at Nanyang Primary School, my middle school education at Chinese High School, my high school education at National Junior College, my undergraduate education (electrical engineering) at the National University of Singapore, and my graduate education (MS and PhD) (computer engineering) at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
After my undergraduate education, I worked briefly at Hewlett Packard (Singapore) as a product engineer and as a process engineer. After my graduate education, I worked at Santa Clara University (U.S.A), first as an assistant professor, later as an associate professor, then as a professor, now as a university endowed chair professor. I have served in the university’s school of engineering as an associate dean for graduate studies and research, then as an associate dean for research and faculty development, and now as the department chair for the department of computer science and engineering (formerly the department of computer engineering).
In Singapore I attended the Foochow Methodist Church. In Louisiana I attended the First Baptist Church of Lafayette. In the Bay Area I attended the Lord’s Grace Church, and now the Chinese Church in Christ in Mountain View. I serve as sermon translator.
