Professional Title: 
Assistant Professor
Office: 
Science and Engineering 1 Building, Room 260
Lab
Lab Location: 
Science and Engineering 1 Building, Room 253
Education: 
Ph.D., 2009 - Harvard University
B.S., 2000 - Health Science Center, Beijing University
Research Interests: 

We study mechanisms of cell signaling in the developing brain, focusing on primary cilium, the antenna-like organelle that integrate signaling pathways in the cell. Our research aims to shed light on how signaling errors lead to brain developmental disorders.
