Brief bio: I’ve been deeply attracted by the mystery of plant sciences since I was an undergraduate student. My scientific career started as a Ph.D. student in 2012 under the guidance of Prof. Xiaofeng Wang at Northwest A&F University, where I worked on the brassinosteroid signal transduction pathway. In the winter of 2015, funded by China Scholarship Council, I was honored to join in the research group led by Prof. Ping He and Prof. Libo Shan at Texas A&M University as a Joint-Ph.D. student, engaged in the research on the regulatory mechanisms of plant cell death. After graduation, I moved to Gannan Normal University and worked on citrus Huanglongbing.
