Alumni Spotlight

Junyao Gu, MS '19

"The first-class education and professors of our program appealed to me so much. Another appealing point is that EHE is a cross-divisional department. I really love interdisciplinary research, so knowing students can benefit from both the Whiting School of Engineering and the Bloomberg School of Public Health made me so excited to attend."
