Research:

Molecular and systems neuroscience in C. elegans
 

Education:

Postdoctoral Fellow:  University of California, Santa Cruz
Ph.D.:  University of British Columbia
B.Sc.:  Wuhan University, China
 

Fields of Interest:

  • Cellular and Molecular Structure and Function
  • Genetic Models of Development and Disease
     

Research Interests:

Our research interest is molecular and systems neuroscience. We address: 1) How the C. elegans’ motor system generates locomotion. We address this question through genetics, optogenetics, electrophysiology, and computational modeling approaches. 2) We use the C. elegans nervous system to address the underlying cellular mechanisms of human disorder in neural development.
