Brief bio: After obtaining my Master’s degree with chemical engineering, I had a chance to join a research project led by Dr. Kazue Kanehara at the Institute of Plant and Microbial Biology, Academia Sinica, which focused on the membrane lipid unsaturation in plant Endoplasmic Reticulum stress tolerance. Being fascinated by plant lipid research, I decided to pursue a Ph.D. education at the same institute with a plant lipid researcher Dr. Yuki Nakamura. My current research interest is the regulation of interconversion between diacylglycerol (DAG) and phosphatidic acid (PA) that governs the metabolic homeostasis of plant membrane glycerolipids for spatiotemporal control of plant growth and development.
