I am interested in understanding the mechanisms that plants use to adapt to their changing environment. I am also interested in applying plant biotechnologies to improve plant productivity, quality, and resistance. My career goal is to devote myself to plant biological and biotechnological research, which will deepen our understanding of and lead to solutions for sustainable agriculture.

Research Areas:

  • Plant productivity, quality, and resistance
  • Plant biological and biotechnological research
  • Sustainable agriculture

Current N-related Projects:

  • Virus-induced gene silencing as a tool to investigate water, nitrogen and phosphorus use efficiency in grass species
