Brief bio: I obtained my Ph.D. in Cell Biology in Dr. Ying Sun’s lab at Hebei Normal University, where my doctorate dissertation focused on brassinosteroids (BRs) signaling. During that period, I had been working on Protein Phosphatase 2A (PP2A) in Dr. Zhiyong Wang’s lab in Carnegie Institution at Stanford as a visiting graduate student funded by China Scholarship Council. We demonstrated PP2A is a key component in BR signaling pathway. Currently I’m an associate professor at North China University of Science and Technology. Since joining this university, I got focused on plant polyploidy or whole-genome duplication/triplication (WGD/T), especially on the effects of plant genome polyploidization on the expansion or contraction of important functional gene families.
