Brief bio: After receiving my PhD in plant cell biology at the University of Waterloo in Canada, I moved back to my hometown to begin my postdoctoral fellowship with Professor Mee-Len Chye at the University of Hong Kong. During my doctoral and postdoctoral training, I have developed strong interest in a broad spectrum of plant science, particularly in molecular and cell biology and lipid biochemistry. My current research focuses on the developmental and stress responsive roles of acyl-CoA-binding proteins in Arabidopsis and soybean. In the future, I will continue to explore the signaling mechanisms of plants in response to environmental adversity.
