Undergraduate Students

Yili Hui

 

Hi, I am Yili Hui, a first year undergraduate student at Georgia Tech. My major is still undecided, but very possibly Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Right now, I am interested in Nanotechnology and try to be familiar with the different branches of it and find which part I like most. During my free time, I like traveling/ sketching/ playing the piano. I am now trying to pick up German so that maybe I could study abroad in Germany in the future.
