I am currently a graduate student in the Department of Biological Sciences. I earned my Bachelor's degree from Capital Normal University, Beijing, China.

In the fall of 2010, I enrolled in the department as a direct –admit student. After my lab rotations, I joined Dr. Douglas G. McMahon's lab which is interested in the circadian rhythms in the brain and retina of mouse and zebrafish. My current research focuses on understanding the role of DA neurons in generation of the circadian rhythm in mouse retina.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing badminton, watching all kinds of movies and TV shows and traveling around.
