I joined John's lab in July 2020 and I am currently funded by a BBSRC grant. My work is to understand the role of junction-resolving enzymes in maintaining genome stability by combining structural and biochemical approaches.  

I graduated in Institute of Genetics and Developmental biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences where I obtained the degree of PhD in Genetics. I moved to UK and worked as a postdoc in the lab of Andrea Munsterberg. My project was to find out that how the migration of cardiac progenitor cells (CPCs) was regulated in the early stage of vertebrate embryonic development. My work resulted in the identification of signalling crosstalk as a novel mechanism for controlling CPCs movement behaviour.
