I went to UAB in 1999 and was greeted by Prof. Kauffman, who explained to me the beauty of ergodic theorem in the airport. I feel so lucky that the math department has so many distinguished professors, who are devoted to teaching, research, and fostering students. The departmental environment is always encouraging and makes me feel at home. I benefited from many advices and encouragement given by Prof. Chernov and many faculties. I am always proud of being a Ph.D. student of UAB.
