PhD. Quantitative Geneticist and Biometrician


      From September 2000 to July 2004, I studied mathematics as an undergraduate student at School of Mathematics and Computer Science, Shanxi Normal University, where I received my BSc degree upon graduation. From September 2004 to July 2009, I studied biomathematics at Beijing Normal University, and quantitative genetics at Institute of Crop Science (ICS), Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) as a PhD-degree student. Upon graduation, I received my PhD degree in biomathematics.

      From August 2007 to August 2008, I was a visiting scientist at Institute for Genomic Diversity, Cornell University. I worked with Dr. Edward Buckler on maize nested association mapping (NAM) population and quantitative genetics. During my stay in Cornell, I visited CIMMYT campus in Mexico from November 2007 to December 2007 to work on G by E analysis with Dr. Jose Crossa. 

       I worked as an Assistant Professor from July 2009 to December 2011 and Associate Professor from January 2012 to now at ICS-CAAS. My research is on the application of biometrics and quantitative genetics in plant breeding. My research interests are QTL linkage mapping and association mapping, and genetic diversity under high throughput genetic markers/sequence data, and breeding simulation, etc.
