Brief bio: During my postgraduate period, I mainly conducted research on the pathogenic mechanism of fusarium wilt of banana. In my doctoral and postdoctoral research, I focused on the studies of the molecular mechanisms of senescence and stress-induced plant cell death, as well as the basic functions of NRP genes in various environmental stress responses.
