Brief bio: I completed my Ph.D. from Sun Yat-sen University (Guangzhou, China) under the supervision of Prof. Jinfa Wang and Prof. Hongbin Wang in 2011, during which my research focus on the molecular mechanism of rice MAPK phosphatase involved in the regulation of stress. After that, I came to the Prof. Mingyong Zhang’s lab in South China Botanical Garden, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) as a postdoctoral fellow, engage in the research of rice nutrition physiology. In late 2013, I got the chance to join the Prof. Xingliang Hou’s group in South China Botanical Garden to study the molecular regulation mechanism of the interaction between plants and pathogens, which is a complex and interesting work involving the interaction between two organisms. My work is focused on how plants receive upstream instructions at the molecular level when the pathogens infect them, and then mobilize different protein molecules to form complexes to response the pathogens.
