After obtaining a Master degree in soil microbiology from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (2012), I moved to Sydney and studied in the Centre for Marine Bio-innovation affiliated to the University of New South Wales. I obtained my PhD degree in Dec. 2016. My doctoral research focused on the bacterial diveristy on the surface of biochar, a emerging soil amendment. I developed a nanogold in situ hybridization method that can specifically detect bacteria on the surface of biochar using electron microscopy. I also used 16S amplicon sequencing and environmental metagenomics to explore the bacterial compositions and functions on the surface of biochar. 

I am now working with Prof. Gene Tyson in developing a novel in situ hybridization method combining with my previous skills and knowledge. My other topics of interest include soil micorbiome, sustainable agriculture and direct interspecies electron transfer.
