Brief bio: 

My research interests focus on corn breeding technologies such as doubled haploid, genome selection, and gene-editing. I currently work more on high throughput corn doubled haploid production-process optimizing, field management improving, DH line evaluation with genome selection. I will spend more time on monocots’ doubled haploid production like tomato, soybean, and cruciferae vegetables in the near future. Hope to make collaborations with researchers in this field.
