From childhood I have been surrounded by and thrived on many things intimately connected with science. Born into an engineering family, my interest in science was cultivated from an early age, for not only were my parents avid pursuers of further knowledge, which they were always willing to share with me, my hometown, Chengdu, is a city famous for its electronics industry.

Before I reached the age of 17, I had already won several prizes in various Chengdu electronics contests. I won the Chengdu Electronic Design Contest for Teenagers with my Traffic Control Simulator based on 555Ics, and a computer programme I designed won second prize in the Chengdu Science and Technology Contest for high School Students.

In 1991, in the highly competitive National Entrance Examination I placed first out of more than 20, 000 students. I chose to attend Sichuan University, the best of its kind in southwest China. During my four years there I worked hard to achieve straight A's and my GPA was consistently in the top 2% in my Department. Furthermore, as recognition of my academic achievements, I was awarded the first prize scholarship every year. In order to graduate with a more rounded education, I elected to take extra courses in both the Mathematics and Computer Science Department. In 1994 I won 2nd prize in the University's Mathematical Model Building Competition.

In taking all the major courses in the Computer Science Department, I discovered that I have a particular talent for computer science. Thus I began to explore more and more areas of this field. I participated in the 5th National Conference on Image and Graphics, organised by the Institute of the Image and Graphics (IIG), which further fuelled my interest by opening my eyes to the possibilities presented by modern computer science. The Director of the Computer Science Department of the IIG is Professor You Zhishen, also Vice Chairman of The Chinese Association of Image and Graphics. Famous for his work on image processing and computer graphics, aspiring computer science students vie for the opportunity to study under his guidance. In 1995, I earned this honor by scoring first place in the highly selective national graduate student examinations in all of the computer science examinations.

Before taking up this opportunity, I completed an internship at the Headquarters of ChangHong Electronics Corporation, one of the biggest in China, where I obtained first-hand, practical experience of the application of advanced technologies in the modern electronics industry. I then graduated with my Bachelor of Science, and began research for my Master's Degree in Computer Science. From this moment forth I have concentrated my attentions on computer science. My first project was to conduct research on the Multichannel Digital Synchronised Log, part of a larger project (DRS Radio Simulator) our Institute was organising. This project came 2nd in the 1996 National Science and Technology Progress Awards, the most prestigious awards in the industry. As a team member, I learnt the value of co-operation, as well as the importance of individual responsibility in a project-oriented group.

In 1996, I participated in research on "Mias-2000 Series PC Based Imagery Analysis System", during which time I developed the multi-dimensional slide window method, while concurrently developing software on image restoration. As a result of this research, the Dean of the Department invited me to assist in programming another departmental project, a privilege he bestowed on few people.

In the fall of 1996 I assisted in the most exciting project I have yet undertaken, helping the software group develop a Real Time Video Coding/Decoding System, based on CL560, and conforming to the motion-JPEG standard. Despite the difficulties we encountered, due to the fact that this field was new to us all, we worked day in and day out, filled with energy and excitement at the prospects this field has to offer. It is in this area I would like to carry out my future research, perhaps developing new networking algorithms and image-compression algorithms to solve the problems posed by transmitting images on networks.

Soon after this the completion of this program, I worked on a CAAC-sponsored project, "Research on High Resolution Display Systems," which was based on the Sony 2000 * 2000 high-resolution monitor.

After completion of my Master of Science Degree, I began work in the Computer Science Department, and am currently in charge of a new project entitled "Research on Computer Aided Sperm Analysis".

I excelled more than just at my studies. Amidst my tight schedule, I always found the time to develop my skills in other areas, constantly participating in college activities. I was the Vice-Chairman of the Department's Student Council, Vice President of the Student Council from 1994-1995 and President of the Graduate Council for 2 years. Furthermore, I was an active member of the Speech and Debating Club, involved in debates in both Chinese and English and winning 1st prize in the 1995 Sichuan University English Speech Competition. I am currently working as a graduate teaching assistant, tutoring the undergraduate students, who know that my door is always open to them.

For as long as I can remember, I have been exploring the wonders of the information age, attempting to discover its secrets. In doing so, I have developed an entrenched team spirit, as I believe that advanced technologies are always the products of joint human efforts I have a solid background in mathematics, electronics and computer science, which I have taken full advantage of in intensive research in the areas of information transferring (e. g. computer networking), information processing (e. g. image and signal processing), and information organisation (e. g. multimedia and computer graphics). As the Thayer School encourages interdisciplinary research, it perfectly suits my background and ideals.

I not only have the conviction that the world needs more advanced technology but also follow that through with the ambition and daring to undertake high quality, cutting-edge research, research that will undoubtedly make a bountiful contribution both to your school and to my country. My burning ambition is to ensure that, with my assistance, China continues to make steady progress into the advanced world. Therefore, upon completion of my studies I plan to return to my homeland and turn this dream into a reality.

I realise that admission into your school is highly competitive, but I know that I am highly qualified, eager and prepared to meet all of the challenges I will undoubtedly be presented with Please open your doors to me so I can open the doors of discovery to the world.
