About me (he/him/his)
I am an RNA biologist and bioinformatician. Originally from China, I finished my PhD at University of California San Diego, and received postdoctoral training at Boston Children’s Hospital of Harvard Medical School and University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.
I trained in molecular bench experiment research from 2007-2017, mainly in the field of RNA-binding proteins and RNA degradation. Since then, I have worked on coding and computational skills to analyze sequencing and genomic data, still with a focus on RNA.
The current position also gave me more teaching and mentoring opportunities, in both basic biology and bioinformatics, which have been greatly rewarding.
In my free time, I am an avid reader, blue collar basketball player, cat lover, and frequent volunteer at the local zoo/aquarium/museum, trying to instill my enthusiasm for science into the public.
