Brief bio: I was born in Yangzhou, Jiangsu province, a historic city established 2,500 years ago. I started my life in Nanjing in the year 2002, when I got the admission to Nanjing Agricultural University as a freshman. I joined Prof. Guohua Xu’s group in 2005 and focused on the transcriptional/post-transcriptional regulation and functional characterization of plant phosphate transporter genes. After got my Ph.D degree in 2011, I became a faculty of Nanjing Agricultural University and continued my research in Prof. Guohua Xu’s group.
