Brief Biography: I first learned how exciting plant biology research could be when I was working on an undergraduate research project at Nanjing University. After I joined Dr. Shan Lu’s group for research training and post-graduate studies, I mainly focused on two subjects: the regulation of secondary metabolism in both green algae and higher plants, and the regulation of chloroplast development. Currently I am working on carotenoid metabolism in green leaves and other carotenoid-rich tissues as a postdoc in Dr. Li Li’s lab at Cornell University, where the ORANGE (OR) protein was initially identified. My future career plan is to lead an independent research group studying chloroplast development for promoting photosynthetic capacity and nutritional values of crops.
