Brief bio: I am interested in guanosine-3’,5’-cyclic monophosphate (cGMP) signaling transduction. During my Ph. D study, my major project focused on identification of cGMP-dependent protein kinase from plants and characterization of its role in mediating gibberellin response in rice. I am also interested in lipid signaling and has participated some projects related to lipid metabolism and signaling in stress response in plants.
