Brief bio: I did my graduate research and doctoral dissertation at Zhejiang University, China with Prof. Yuanwen Teng working on the mechanism of DNA methylation and microRNA regulating peel coloration in red pear. I did 2 years of joint training PhD and 2 years and 4 months of postdoctor at Örebro University, Sweden with Prof. Åke Strid to use UV light improving the quality of greenhouse grown vegetables including cucumber, basil, and dill. I recently began a lectureship at College of Horticulture, Hainan University, China (lab PI: Prof. Kaibing Zhou). My current research interest is developing new techniques to improve the appearance quality of mango fruit, and reveal the mechanism underlying it.
