I was born in 1982, in a small city in northeast of China, and spent 7 years in Harbin for my Bachelor degree in forestry and Master degree in forest tree genetics and breeding, in Northeast Forestry University, Harbin, China. Since 2008, I am a PhD student at Lund University, studying pheromone variation and speciation in moths.
My research spans from moth pheromone biosynthesis genes to plant expression insect derived genes. I have cloned a terminal fatty-acyl-CoA desaturase gene from winter moth, the first desaturase with such special activity. I'm currently producing moth pheromone in plants.
