While looking through the hospital's library one day, Eng found an article that related to his thesis topic. He reached out to its author — a professor at Texas Tech University named Miriam Mulsow. Eng said she responded to his email right away and was helpful throughout the process. He would email her questions, and she would help him with research.
When Eng graduated in 2002, Mulsow invited him to Texas Tech to continue his graduate studies, all expenses paid.
