Following Christ 2008 is now less than a week away (not to mention that other important event this week). Here at the ESN blog, we will be privileged to welcome Dr. Cynthia Lo, assistant professor of chemistry at Washington University, as a guest blogger during FC08. Here is a little bit more about her:
Cynthia Lo is currently an assistant professor of Chemical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. Originally from California, Cynthia was raised in a Christian family and baptized in her first year of college. While pursuing her PhD at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, she became actively involved in the Intervarsity Graduate Christian Fellowship and subsequently joined the Emerging Scholars Network. It was during this time that she attended the Following Christ 2002 conference in Atlanta, which spurred her to pursue an academic career. After moving to Washington, DC for her postdoctoral appointment, she started blogging about the arts and sciences, faith, and culture. Cynthia is a member of Memorial Presbyterian Church in St. Louis and can often be found listening to music, cooking, or traveling.
The last Following Christ obviously had a major impact in Cynthia’s life, so I’m looking forward to hearing her thoughts about this year’s conference.
P.S. If you missed your chance when I first announced our guest blogger opportunity, or if you’re the kind of person who knows that Dec. 24 is when all the really good sales begin, there’s still time to apply! Let me know if you’re interested.
