I completed my MSc degree at Sun Yat-sen University, China, where I used differential gene expression analysis and pool-seq sequencing to investigate the genetic basis of heteranthery and the regulation mechanisms of floral development.

Currently, I joined Anja Westram’s group as a Ph.D. fellow at Nord University to further explore my interests in the genomic basis and spatial patterns of local adaptation. My PhD project is centered on temperature adaptation in the marine snail Littorina saxatilis. We plan to combine QTL and gene expression analyses approaches to identify genomic regions associated with temperature tolerance across both shore level gradients and latitudinal gradients.
