I was born and grew up in China. In 2012,I got my Ph.D. degree from Sun Yat-sen University.I have focused on AMD research in United States for more than four years. I worked in University of Texas Medical Branch before I moved to Tulane University in 2016. I published several important papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals, including the Journal of Biological Chemistry (JBC) and Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science (IOVS). I have extensive expertise on the molecular biology and animal models of AMD. I also have the passion to devote my research career to find a cure for AMD.
