I have a broad interest in evolutionary biology, molecular ecology, and biodiversity. My research topics include population genomics, phylogenetics, biogeography, speciation and hybridization, and systematics. I am mostly interested in the wild populations of non-model species (such as bats) but I also use simulations and model systems (such as sticklebacks) to study evolutionary processes.
I am currently a postdoc in the Merilä Lab at the University of Hong Kong (HKU). I earned my BS degree in Biological Sciences at Peking University (PKU) in 2017, supervised by Dr. Shu-Jin Luo, and my PhD degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) in May 2022, supervised by Dr. Emily Latch and the UWM Behavioral & Molecular Ecology Group. My Ph.D. projects are focused on the molecular evolution and biogeography of bats. I used genomic approaches to study population genomics and species divergence, and incorporated distribution modeling to estimate species responses to climate change.
