Brief bio: I studied at Northwest A&F University in Yangling, China for my bachelor and master degree, during which I developed my interest in plants and their interaction with surrounding environments. During my PhD studies under the supervison of Prof. Rens Voesenek and Dr. Rashmi Sasidharan, I focused on unravelling the significance of plant hormone ethylene as an early flooding signal in the conjoint stress event of hypoxia and re-oxygenation. Currently, I am working at the group of Prof. Teresa Fitzpatrick at University of Geneva as a postdoctoral fellow to investigate the regulation of vitamin B6 metabolism in plants in association with environmental stresses.
个人简历：我在西北农林科技大学本科和硕士学习期间，产生并培养了自己对植物及其与周边环境互作问题的兴趣。随后我有幸加入荷兰乌特勒支大学植物生理生态课题组，在Rens Voesenek教授和Rashmi Sasidharan博士的指导下攻读博士学位。在此期间， 我主要致力于研究植物激素乙烯作为水淹胁迫早期信号是如何调控植物克服低氧和再复氧这两个相关联的胁迫反应。目前，我在日内瓦大学Teresa Fitzpatrick教授课题组做博士后研究。研究课题方向为维生素B6在植物体内的调控以及其对植物生长、发育和应对环境胁迫反应的影响
