I am a first year postdoc in van Pijkeren’s lab in the Department of Food Science. My postdoc work focuses on how dietary sugars modulate phage production in the probiotic gut symbiont  Limosilactobacillus reuteri. I was born in Zhejiang, China, and did my undergraduate at the China Agricultural University. After that, I completed my Ph.D. in Food Microbiology at the University of Alberta.  In my free time, I enjoy cooking, K-pop, and sketching.
