About Cindy...

I was born on March 29 in Hunan province, south of China. After graduating from Central South University and getting my Masters degree, I came to WSU to continue my PhD studies, majoring in veterinary Science. I really enjoy my research and life here, and I also got married this August (2010) in Moscow, Idaho to WSU graduate student Terry Wang. (Note: Terry and Cindy are both from China, but they met last year at WSU.)
