I am a Ph.D. student from Dr. Gota Morota ‘s group in the School of Animal Sciences at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.

My research interests focus on incorporating statistics, machine learning, and bioinformatics into the study of animal and plant genetics in the omics era. I am also interested in the application of computer vision systems for high-throughput phenotyping in precision agriculture.

Before joing VT, I obtained a master degree in Animal Biology at University of California Davis, a master degree in Animal Nutrition and Feed Science at Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, a bachelor degree in Animal Science at Shandong Agricultural University.
