I am objective-oriented, perseverant and well-organized. I have clear logic thinking, good sense of numbers, and the ability of seeing through mess to catch critical information. Mixed background of social science and engineering cultivates me to be pragmatic, rational but also inter-personally sensitive and considerate. I have years of experience of data mining as well as project-leading and programming in bio-medical and semiconductor metrology fields into which I'd like to dive deeper; when there's chance, I also look forward to extending my exploration to fields like medicine, health care, or education. I'm also open and feel excited to relocate for working overseas.

Senior Data ScientistTaiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) － Hsinchu, Taiwan
I've been working as an data scientist in Advanced Metrology Center for 4 years. My job is to extract critical information from mess engineering data in order to figure out the root causes of Lithography process defects in R&D stages including Optical Patterning Correction (OPC), mask making and repairing, and pattern printing. In finding to solution to these tasks, skills of data mining, mathematical modeling and algorithm developing are deeply involved. I also lead and co-work with IT for several projects of methodology developing and system establishing.
I won a Golden Trade Secret Award by the project I led 'Statistical OPC and Process Characterization' in 2015 in which several Statistic-based solutions were proposed to response to those tasks conventionally fixed empirically to help decision makers in making judgment based on objective numerical information and avoiding the risk of manual subjective bias.

Data ScientistTSMC － Hsinchu, Taiwan
Establishing my domain knowledge of Lithography and Metrology was the main focus of my first two years in TSMC. This was the fundamental work to let me genuinely know about the data I dealt with, the overall Lithography process flow, defective pattern characterizing and recognizing.
In 2014 I won a Buddy Award for being outstanding in coaching new comers.

Summer InternTSMC － Hsinchu, TaiwanIn these two-month internship, I designed and executed a data mining project in which a forecasting model was developed to measure how likely a job applicant might have quick departure. This project won the recommendation award in the final competition.
Master of Science: Industrial Engineering, Data MiningNational Taiwan University (NTU) － Taipei, TaiwanI co-worked with National Taiwan University Hospital for a project aiming to construct an ensemble classification model which automatically categorized breast tumors into five levels basing on the numerical information extracted from tumor's ultra-sound images. This modeling methodology was patented in Taiwan and the US in 2015.
Bachelor of Arts: DiplomacyNational Chengchi University (NCCU) － Taipei, TaiwanI got my bachelor's degree in Diplomacy from National Chengchi University; during my college years I'd been given very solid training in language and inter-personal communication. I was a schoolmate envoy who helped foreign students fit in the school smoothly.
