Brief bio: After completing my Ph.D. in 2019, I joined Biosciences Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory as a postdoc. I mainly worked on genome engineering and plant synthetic biology including developing of populus stable transformation, application of CRIPSR gene editing in poplar, developing of biosensor for detection of CRISPR genome engineering. Currently I am working on developing multiplex genome editing using CRISPR/Cas systems in fungi in Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
