Research Associate Biochemistry & Systems Biology


    Personal Statement

    I obtained my master degree in Animal genetics, breeding and reproduction at the Huazhong Agricultural University in 2013. Then I was supported by Chinese Scholarship Council to join in the research group led by Professor Luning Liu at the University of Liverpool as a PhD student. My PhD project focused on investigating the biogenesis of carboxysomes in cyanobacteria using live-cell fluorescent microscopy imaging, molecular genetics and biochemical approaches. After graduation, I continued my research as a postdoctoral research associate in the Liu Lab to explore in depth the structural and functional basis of bacterial organelles.
