Brief bio: My interest in plants dates back to the day I was attracted by Penjing, which is a form of miniature landscapes, when I was a high school student. I knew I wanted to work on plants from that day onwards. I obtained my Master’s degrees in horticulture from Zhejiang University in China. I joined La Trobe University in 2015 as a Ph.D. student in Prof. Jim Whelan’s lab to investigate modulators of the phosphate starvation response in Arabidopsis using transcriptome sequencing and GWAS. Since September 2019, I have been working as a bioinformatician in Mathew Lewsey’s lab to study the mechanism of beta-glucan accumulation in oats using a diverse array of high-throughput sequencing and data visualisation methods.
简 介：我对植物的兴趣起源于在我高中的时候有一天被一棵盆景吸引了。从那天开始我知道我将来想从事植物相关工作。我在浙江大学完成了我的硕士学位，专业为园艺学。我于2015年加入乐卓博大学Jim Whelan教授实验室攻读博士学位。我博士期间主要运用转录组测序和全基因组关联分析鉴定拟南芥中低磷胁迫响应的调控因子。我于2019年加入Mathew Lewsey实验室，我博士后的研究方向主要是通过高通量测序研究燕麦中β-葡聚糖的积累机制。
