Education

BS in Biotechnology from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), 2012

Research Interests

To understand the breadth of evolutionary paths through which antibiotic resistance arises under non-laboratory conditions by applying GLINT(global linkage based investigation of naturally occurring traits) to a collection of E. coli isolates.

Research History

    2015 to Present:
        Freddolino Lab, Biological Chemistry Department, University of Michigan
        Research focus: Unravelling the evolutionary paths to clinical antibiotic tolerance with GLINT

    2010 to 2014 
        Gao Lab, School of Life Science, University of Science and Technology of China
        Research focus: 
                Development of the genetic manipulation system of Thermoascus aurantiacus;
                Utilization of MutS to reduce error rates of microchip-synthesized oligonucleotides.
