Brief bio: My major research interest is to dissect the molecular mechanisms underlying plant salt tolerance. I started my research career since I became a graduate student of Professor Yan Guo. During my graduate and postdoctoral study, I published two research works in The Plant Cell, which strongly encouraged me to continue in the plant abiotic stress biology area. Now, I am a principal investigator at Sichuan University as an associate professor. In my laboratory, we use Arabidopsis and several non-model plants to investigate how plants respond and adapt to abiotic stresses, especially high soil salinity. Our goal is to provide candidate gene resources for salt-tolerant crop construction in the future.
简历：本人主要关注植物耐盐分子机制，相关兴趣始于我有幸成为郭岩教授的研究生。在读研及博士后研究期间本人先后有2项研究工作发表于The Plant Cell期刊，这给了我继续从事植物逆境生物学研究的勇气。本人目前任四川大学生命科学学院副教授，课题组主要以模式植物拟南芥以及部分非模式植物为研究对象，解析植物应答与耐受逆境胁迫特别是盐胁迫的分子机制，以期为遗传改良作物、创制耐盐作物新品种提供重要的基因资源。
