Howdy! My name is Bo. I graduated with a Ph.D. at The University of Texas at Austin. My research focused on developing machine learning methods for industrial data in chemical engineering, visit my LinkedIn or Google Scholar Page for details.

I also dabble in web development and programming of all sorts. On the backend, I worked with PHP, Python, Node.JS; On the front-end, I am familiar with CSS, JQuery, Vue, and Photoshop.

My specific photographic interests are landscape, journalistic and street photography.

My Gear

I shoot with a 5d mark II. My lenses are all Canon: 40mm f/2.8 pancake, 17-40 f/4L, 85mm f/1.8, and 70-200 f/2.8 II. I post-process using mostly Lightroom and Photoshop.

How is this site made?

I believe in pragmatic minimalism. This site reflects that, which is really just a front-end for my Flickr portfolio, why re-invent the wheel with some redundant CMS? So I did away with WordPress completely. I'd like to thank the developers of these Javascript libraries that made this process painless: jQuery, fullpage-scroll, handlebars, flickr JSON API.
