Research Description:

My research aims to understand the biosynthetic pathway and function of sphingolipids in plants. Sphingolipids are structural components of membranes and bioactive molecules involved in cellular processes and environmental responses. Currently, I am investigating the molecular mechanisms of sphingolipid biosynthetic regulation in gene-edited Arabidopsis mutants.

In my free time I enjoy hiking, biking and traveling.
