Brief bio: I was trained as a biology researcher in my undergraduate study. My interest in research motivated me to pursue graduate studies at Huazhong Agricultural University in 2016. I am currently a Ph.D. student. I find discovering  new enzyme activity and function exciting because it helps us to better understand lipid metabolism and its impact on plant response to nutrient availability.
