Brief bio: In June of 2014, I joined the research team led by Prof. Chuanen Zhou, and engaged in the research on the mechanisms of pulvinus development and nyctinastic leaf movement in Medicago truncatula. The main findings in this study are as follows: 1. Brassinosteroid homeostasis would influence the nyctinastic leaf movement. 2. PLP functions in the determinant of pulvinus formation in a species-specific manner. In the future, I will continue to study the developmental mechanism of pulvinus in Medicago truncatula.
