I received my Bachelor of Biology from Nanjing Normal University (China) in 2011. After obtaining a Master of Bioinformatics in Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium), I jointed the group of Dr Cinzia Cantacessi as a research assistant in 2014 to start a project about the change of gut microbiota in helminth driven suppression of inflammation. After this job, I started my PhD study under the supervision of Dr Cinzia Cantacessi from Oct 2016.
I am passionate about next-generation sequencing technology, data mining, and statistical analysis. I am currently focusing on studying the influence of helminth on human microbiota through the above mentioned techniques.
