About Me

I graduated from Fudan University in Shanghai in 2005. Afterwards, I conducted research as a visiting scholar at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. I am currently a graduate student in the MCB Program and joined the Huang lab in July 2014. My research is focused on uncovering mechanisms of T cell differentiation. Outside of work, I love to watch and play basketball and in Houston cheered on Yao Ming at the Toyota Center.
