I am currently a postdoc in the Merilä Lab at the University of Hong Kong (HKU). My research interest includes evolutionary biology, speciation and hybridization, biodiversity, population genomics, phylogenetics and systematics, and biogeography. I am mostly interested in the wild populations of non-model species (especially bats), but my work also includes simulations and model systems (current work in sticklebacks).
I earned my BS degree in Biological Sciences at Peking University (PKU) in 2017, supervised by Dr. Shu-Jin Luo. I earned 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. program is focused on the molecular evolution and biogeography of bats. I used genomic approaches to study population and species divergence, and incorporated distribution modeling to estimate species responses to climate change.
