Current Position: Postdoctoral Research Associate, The Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge University, UK

Education: Ph.D. in Genetics (Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology, Chinese Academy of Sciences)

Non-scientific interests: reading, sports

Brief-Bio: My PhD research focused on crop genetics. I used rice as a model to study the molecular mechanisms underlying agronomic traits and the crosstalk between rice immune response and growth. Since 2014 I have been working as a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Prof Elliot Meyerowitz. My research aims to understand the cell wall synthesis and hormonal control of stem cell dynamics at the shoot apical meristem. I am using interdisciplinary approaches and molecular cellular tools to investigate gene expression, mRNA localization, and stem cell division.


当前职位:博士后,英国剑桥大学Sainsbury Laboratory



个人简介:我博士期间的研究集中于水稻重要农艺性状的分子调控以及作物免疫和发育的平衡。自2014年起,我加入Elliot Meyerowitz教授研究组,探索植物干细胞发育的动态调节以及拟南芥顶端分生组织细胞壁的合成。目前我利用交叉学科的研究方法,解析基因表达,mRNA亚细胞定位以及干细胞扩增的分子细胞学机理。
