About Kaitlyn

   
   

Youngeun Kaitlyn Choi (최영은)

WHO I AM (updated 11/26/16):

I am a daughter, a granddaughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend, a student, a (baby) teacher, and a (baby) scientist.

Studied at Daejeon Science High School in Korea and Bard College in NY, USA (class of 2009); recently received a Ph.D. in Developmental and Regenerative Biology from Harvard University (May 2014); worked as a preceptor (undergraduate teaching faculty) in the Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology at Harvard University (2014-2016); currently working as an assistant teaching professor at Georgetown University (from Aug. 2016)

Love playing sports (rather than watching games), reading books, and listening to people (rather than talking and leading conversations). I also enjoy playing the viola, interacting with students, learning new things, and thinking about how to teach.

A long-time subscriber of Wall Street Journal and The New Yorker. (We should pay for–let alone pay more–quality journalism just as we pay more for organic food and better clothes. It is as simple as that.)

  1. What a wondeerful idea! I’ve been looking forward to seeing you doing such a wonderful thing as this. God bless you!

    • Thank you so much for sharing the post with me! It somewhat resonates with the book I am currently reading: “On Looking: Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes” by Alexandra Horowitz 🙂 I cannot agree more that we definitely need some kinds of adventures to “extend” time. However, I think adventures here do not necessarily entail trips to exotic places; a regular visit to Starbucks nearby could be full of surprises as long as my brain is challenged by new perspectives, new ideas, and new stories. As the author of the post alluded, the mechanism behind slowing down the perception of time could be that we keep our brain busy with other things so that it puts a hold on its “time counting” function. Thanks again and Happy New Year!! -Kaitlyn
