I am fascinated by "Endless forms most beautiful", and broadly interested in how do organisms evolve. I've looked at this question by studying the evolutionary processes of multiple organisms, including alpine fish and social arthropod. I completed my PhD with Kai Zhao at the Chinese Academy of Sciences and worked on the Schizothoracine fish genome project. I am now working with Timothy Linksvayer at Arizona State University as an Assistant Research Scientist. Here I integrate genomics and modeling approaches to investigate the genetic bases of evolution of social complexity in arthropods.
