I am currently a postdoc in the Merilä Lab at the University of Hong Kong. My research interest includes evolutionary biology, biogeography, phylogenetics, biodiversity, and population genomics, mostly in the wild populations of animals.
I obtained my BS degree in Biological Sciences at Peking University in 2017, supervised by Dr. Shu-Jin Luo. I earned my PhD degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in May 2022, supervised by Dr. Emily Latch and the UWM Behavioral & Molecular Ecology Group. My Ph.D. program is focused on the molecular evolution and biogeography of bats. I used genomic approaches to study the population and species divergence, and incorporated distribution modeling to estimate species responses to climate change.
