Research group



I finished my undergrad in China at the Nanjing Agricultural University studying Agriculture. Then I obtained my Master's degree at Wageningen University, The Netherlands, majoring in plant sciences and specialising in plant breeding and genetic resources. Because of my passion for biotic stress and genetics, I joined Sebastian's group to start my PhD in exploring more susceptibility and resistance genes underlying plant-nematode interactions.
