I am finishing Ph.D. student of Dr. Nakas. I come from the north part of China, where the winter is as cold as Syracuse. I earned my B.S. and M.S. degrees at different cities of the the south part of China.

I am very interested in biofuels and any useful product produced by microorganisms. My research here focuses on the microbial production of biodegradable polyhydroxyalkanotes (PHAs) from renewable resources.

Outside of my research, I like playing basketball and just becamem a HUGE fan of the SU Basketball Team. GO ORANGE!!!

I am on my way to learning how to ski in the winter and I think I am doing well. I do a lot of traveling too!
