Haiming was born in a small village in south China located not far from Hong Kong, where a lot of villagers have relatives. Thus the villagers are influenced by both traditional Chinese culture and by Hong Kong's more western culture. The fusing of these different cultures produces new thoughts in people's mind, fuels rapid development of industry, and has given rise to a boom in construction of new buildings. Haiming attributes his ability to adapt quickly to new things to his childhood experiences in this environment. He is currently working in a low temperature lab, but is still in search of areas of physics excite him.
