Can you briefly introduce yourself?

I am a graduate student from the western part of India, and I moved to the US in January 2017. I am here as a Mechanical Engineer, and I will stay here for another two years at least. Before coming to the US, I worked as a mechanical design engineer for a German company back home for a year and a half.

What made you want to come to Duke?

Because I couldn’t get into MIT or Stanford! Well, Duke has one of the top ten best Mechanical Engineering schools in the world.

A nap, a big hug, some really really good food, and snuggling with your dog are a few of the mental images the “Take What You Need” board offers. The end of the semester can be a stressful time and while a weekend at the beach would be great, sometimes just taking a moment to imagine yourself on vacation is enough to catch your breath.

When we eat a great meal we don't usually think about the farmer that planted the crops, or the truck driver that transported the ingredients, or the retailer that stocked their shelves, or the chef that followed a recipe, or any of the other countless individuals involved in each bite. Thinking about every bite in such detail would be overwhelming and at the end of the day everyone involved is happy that their work was appreciated. Attending a great event can be viewed in the same way.

It’s your junior summer.  Perhaps you are working in the “big” internship that will potentially lead to your first professional position.  Perhaps you are participating in research on campus, or taking summer courses, or continuing to take the field/court/pool in training for your athletic commitments.  What can you do to make it a productive summer outside of your main commitments?

You want to be ready to hit the ground running when you return to Duke in the fall. 
So, this summer...

New Zealand is an island nation in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The country geographically comprises two main landmasses—the North Island, or Te Ika-a-Māui, and the South Island, or Te Waipounamu—and around 600 smaller islands. New Zealand is situated some 1,500 kilometres  east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometres south of the Pacific island areas of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. Because of its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. During its long period of isolation, New Zealand developed a distinct biodiversity of animal, fungal and plant life.

My name is Ching-Yi Wu. You can call me Catherine. I am a visiting scholar from Taiwan. I am carrying out research on intellectual property law at the law school

 

Why did you choose to research intellectual property law?

I have been in the field of law for eighteen years now. I am a judge in Taiwan and I’ve spent ten years being a judge at the criminal court and eight years as a civil judge. Let’s just say, I wanted to try out something new. Besides, I was not going to miss an opportunity to do research in the world class university that Duke is.

 

That is so impressive! How did your experience as a judge affect you as a person?
