My girlfriend Yuting and I recently adopted a cat named Poke. We named him after poke bowls, a food we enjoy. He is 10-months-old now. He likes to jump around my table while I am on zoom calls. I think he must be interested in modeling, too!
What Shen's colleagues say about him:
"Shen takes the initiative with all aspects of his project work. He repeatedly demonstrates a strong foundational knowledge of pharmacometrics and a commitment to high-quality production level work. We’re excited to see Shen continue to develop as a modeling scientist." -Curtis Johnston
