I took a difficult electronics course taught by
Professor Lu, and the wide world of electronics opened my eyes to
new possibilities. I enjoyed the challenge, and I fused together
my interest in things quantum with electronics, and the idea of
nanoelectronics was born in my head (not that I coined the phrase,
but conceptually it was there). Fortunately for me, Professor Lu's
group specialized in this area and I expressed interest to her about
working in her lab. She was glad to give me the opportunity.
