Brief bio: In 2011, I received B.S. degree at Beijing Forestry University, majoring in biological sciences (National Science Talent Training Base). In the same year, I was recommended to the College of Biological Sciences and Technology for postgraduate studies in botany, under the supervision of Academician Weilun Yin and Prof. Xinli Xia. In 2014, I transferred to the department of silviculture, college of forestry, and continued to study the physiological response and molecular regulatory mechanism of drought stress tolerance in poplar. From November 2015 to June 2017, with funding from the China Scholarship Council, I entered the laboratory of Prof. Georgia Drakakaki at University of California, Davis, for academic exchanges, exploring the mechanism of small molecule compound ES7 in interfering cell plate morphogenesis. After obtaining Ph.D. degree in 2018, I joined the research team of Prof. Hongwei Guo/Dr. Zhonghai Li at BAIC-TBMD. My studies focus on dissecting the regulatory mechanism of autumn leaf senescence in poplar and exploring the regulatory mechanism of stress adaptation from the perspective of senescence in trees.






个人简介:2011年本科毕业于北京林业大学生物学院,生物科学专业(国家理科基地班)。同年推荐免试进入生物学院植物学专业,师从尹伟伦院士和夏新莉教授。2014年转入林学院森林培育学专业。硕博期间,从生物学和林学两个角度,研究杨树应对干旱胁迫的生理适应策略及其分子调控机理。2015年11月至2017年6月,在国家留学基金委的资助下,进入美国加州大学戴维斯分校Georgia Drakakaki教授实验室进行学术交流,研究小分子化合物ES7影响细胞板形态建成的机制。2018年获得博士学位后,加入林木分子设计育种高精尖创新中心郭红卫教授/李中海博士研究团队,研究杨树秋季叶片衰老的调控机制以及从衰老角度解析树木逆境适应的调控机理。
