2009- 2016: I completed my bachelor’s degree and my first master’s degree at Inner Mongolia Agricultural University in the College of Animal Science. I majored in Animal Breeding and Genetics during my master’s and focused on quantitative genetic analysis.

2018- 2020: I completed my second master’s program at Norwegian University of Life Science where I studied the effect of epigenetic remodeling of chromatin on gene expression of salmon during smoltification.

2021: In the spring, I joined Dr. Zhana Duren’s lab at the Clemson Center for Human Genetics.


My research interest is in the context specific gene regulatory network, especially genetic variants located on non-coding DNA that causing risk of disease. We use statistical modelling of genomics data to interpret genetics variants and aim to provide and facilitate precision medicine.
