01/2016-09/2018 Postgraduate Research Assistant Department of Plant Sciences, University of Oxford, UK
The aim of the project was to identify the subcellular localization and potential function of Arabidopsis Plant UBX domain-containing protein in chloroplast biogenesis.
08/2009-10/2011 Postgraduate Research Assistant Syngenta Jealott’s Hill International Research Centre, Bracknell, UK
The aim of the project was to identify the key Cytochrome P450 genes that play crucial roles to pathogenicity in Septoria.tritici.
04/2007-07/2009 Postgraduate Research Assistant Department of Plant Sciences, University of Oxford, UK
The aim of the project was to identify maize sequences that are likely involved in regulation of grain shape and size. An array strategy was applied for looking at gene expression in endosperm following interploidy crosses in maize.
