Research Interests: Genetics, immunology, RNA Biology
Hi, I was born in Taipei, Taiwan. I received my B.S. in Medical Technology and M.S. in Microbiology from National Taiwan University (NTU). For undergraduate research, I joined Dr. Hsin-Chih Lai’s lab in Chang Gung University and studied two-component system and the multicellular behavior in Serratia marcescens. I also worked at the Armed Forces General Hospital in Hualien, Taiwan as a medical technician for more than half year. In 2011, I rejoined Dr. Show-Li Chen’s lab in NTU as a research assistant to continue previous research in graduate school, which was about RNA processing and Drosophila development. I am now interested in cancer genetics and biochemistry, so I joined Dr. Chi’s lab in 2014 for my graduate study.
I like Duke because of its research environment, and of course, the Blue Devils basketball. When not in the lab, I usually enjoy road cycling, running and fishing.
