Sep. 2008-June 2011  Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Botany, M.Sc. Supervisor: LI Qing-Jun 


Research direction: Plant nutrition and crop science 


Research interest:   

(1) Integrating plant physiology and multi-omics, we try to dissect the mechanism of development and growth of plant response to various factors. We focus on the regulatory mechanism of upland rice adaptation to the terrestrial environment, drought stress, etc.  

(2) Applications of plant growth regulators to alleviate heavy metals/ abiotic stress, to understand their mechanism of beneficial for plants.
