More About Me

Let me introduce myself.

Profile Picture

My name is Li Jiang Han Han (李江涵瀚). An uncommon combination of four characters, it entails both my parents' surnames, and Han Han connates essential virtues and immenseness of the mind as much as that of the ocean.

Hail from the Hakka community in the southeast of China, I have lived in the United States for the past eight years and find it satisfying to call this land my second home. An adventurer at heart, I have embarked on a string of international ventures and have set foot on four continents.

Over the years, I have been working and studying at the intersection of communications and statistics, and I aspire to leverage their power to facilitate our understanding of each other in a connected world.
