Brief bio: I earned my Ph.D. degree in 2013 under the supervision of Prof. Li-Zhi Gao at Kunming Institute of Botany and worked on whole genome duplication (WGD) and comparative genomics in Gao’s lab for the next few years. During this period, I expanded my studies to include a variety of sequencing projects of wild rice species. In mid-2018, I joined the lab of Prof. De-Zhu Li at KIB driven by my interest in WGD. In collaboration with Dr. Peng-Fei Ma, we study the history of bamboo’s polyploidization and the evolution of basal grasses. I am enjoying the challenge of deciphering the pivotal role of ρ-WGD in the early evolution of grasses.
