Education: Dr. nat. Biology, University of Cologne, Germany
Hobbies: Running, reading, teaching
Bio: I received my Ph.D from University of Cologne for Arabidopsis trichome development in the lab of Professor Martin Hulskamp in 2010. From 2011 to 2016, I did a Postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in the lab of Professor Paul Schulze-Lefert. There, I worked on the high-throughput bacterial isolation and reconstitution of Arabidopsis root microbiota. In May 2016, I built up my research group in Beijing on the function and mechanism of plant-microbiome interactions.
Role: My role in the WISH-ROOTS project is to assist the root microbiome related work, including field trails in China, data analysis, microbial cultivation, and functional validation.
Current Position: Guest scholar at Institute of Genetics and developmental Biology, Chinese Academic of Science.
Education: PhD Plant Nutrition Science, Northwest A&F University, China
