I am teaching the following courses in Fudan University: Introduction to Biology, Essential Cell Biology, Principles in Cell Biology, Modern Microscopy in Cell Biology, Advanced Topics in Organelle Biology. I use the integrated course design to improve student learning. I am using active learning and blended learning approaches in all the courses I teach. I am a firm believer in educational equity.

Since 2015, I become responsible for a top talent training program (bio-elite.fudan.edu.cn) in Fudan and plays an administrative role in the Tan School of Innovation (tsi.fudan.edu.cn). I appreciate that authentic research experience is crucial for undergraduate science teaching, and science communication is a vital part of training future scientists.

In 2012, I started my laboratory in Fudan. Two Ph.D. students graduated in the middle of 2019, one expected in 2020.

Since 2010, I have coded and maintained the paper link, serving tens of thousands of academic users around the world. I am commercializing this product @the_paper_link and please contact me if you are interested.

Between 2008-2011, I was working with Dr. Keith E Mostov in UCSF (2nd floor of Genentech Hall, Mission Bay Campus). My research focus was epithelial morphogenesis, which was supported by a Jane Coffin Childs Postdoctoral Fellowship.

Between 2003-2007, I was a graduate student in Dr. James E Bear's lab in UNC at Chapel Hill (2nd floor of Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center). My Ph.D. dissertation is about how "Coronin 1B coordinates actin dynamics in lamellipodia". I passed the defense on Dec 13, 2007; and I got my doctoral degree on May 11, 2008.

In 2003, I received my Bachelor's degree in Science from Fudan University. Dr. Weida Huang advised my undergraduate thesis.

My hometown is Haining, very close to Hangzhou and Shanghai, in the east part of China.
