My research at MIT focuses on how biological markers preserve information on microbial emergence, and how we can use biomarkers to better constrain the first appearance of eukaryotes. In the Summons Lab, my work is guided by Xingqian Cui.

My research at USTC focuses on the biogeochemical cycles of phosphorus in Antarctica, revealing the transition of the forms and phases of phosphorus in algae, guano, and sediment. My other research at USTC focuses on metal isotopic evidence of the interactions between mosses and soils in Antarctica to find out whether or not the rhizoid’s in mosses absorb nutrients from soils.

I have a strong interest in the mechanism and disposal of heavy metal contamination in environment.
