Brief Bio: I grew up in a small mountain village, so I had the opportunity to get in touch with all kinds of plants when I was young, which raised my interest in plants and nature very early. During 2007-2012, I completed my PhD at Sun Yat-sen University in the Seed Biology Laboratory of Professor Shangzhi Huang. During the 5 years, I studied the molecular mechanism of seed longevity using the sacred lotus and Arabidopsis. In 2012, I did a postdoctoral stay at Shanghai Institute of plant Physiology and Ecology (SIPPE) in the Lab of Professor Hongwei Xue, where I working on the role of casein kinase AELs on seed dormancy and germination. I returned to Sun Yat-sen University in 2016, working with Prof. Chenlong Li and Prof. Shangzhi Huang, to study the molecular mechanism of seed dormancy and germination. Recently, I joined the College of Life Sciences, Nanjing Agricultural University. Now, I am devoting to the study on the molecular mechanism of epigenetic factors regulating seed dormancy and germination.
