What I work with

My research spans from moth pheromone biosynthesis genes to plant expression insect derived genes. I have cloned a terminal fatty-acyl-CoA desaturase gene from winter moth, the first desaturase with such special activity. I'm currently working with moth pheromone production by using plants.


I was born in 1982, in a small city in northeast of China, and spent 7 years in Harbin for my Bachelor degree in forestry and Master degree in forest tree genetics and breeding, in Northeast Forestry University, Harbin, China. In 2008 I started as PhD student in the Pheromone group, studying pheromone variation and speciation in moths. My thesis was defended in Feb 2014.
