Brief bio: I did my graduate research and doctoral thesis at Peking University supervised by Prof. Li-Jia Qu working on VPS18-regulated vesicle trafficking in Arabidopsis. After graduation, I joined Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, as an Assistant Professor and worked for four years. With my interests switching from basic research in plant development to healthcare industry, I moved to a medical AI technology company to do real-world studies through big-data analysis. I do hope with what I learned from the training in Peking University I can be able to help more patients with better treatment strategy/approaches and cost-effective healthcare.
