Educational Background

  • 09/2011 – 12/2016, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, cell biology, Ph.D.

  • 09/2007 – 06/2011, Huazhong Agricultural University, biotechnology, bachelor

Professional Experience

  • 02/2020-present, assistant researcher in Center for Single-Cell Omics, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine. I focus on the metabolic regulation and vulnerability of cancer stem cells in pancreatic cancer by using single-cell analysis.

  • 01/2017 – 01/2020,postdoctoral researcher in Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine. I mainly engaged in three aspects of research as follows: 1. adipose metabolic regulation determines obesity-induced fatty liver and insulin resistance; 2. mechanism of mitochondrial metabolic modulation under stress; 3. FGF21 facilitates breast cancer metastasis through lipid metabolism.
