    Ph.D. Student in Chemical and Systems Biology, admitted Summer 2022

    BioI am currently embarking on my Ph.D. journey at Stanford University’s Department of Chemical and Systems Biology, generously supported by both NIH and NSF grants. Under the guidance of Nobel Laureate Carolyn Bertozzi, from the Department of Chemistry and the Stanford ChEM-H Institute, and Longzhi Tan from the Department of Neurobiology, my research continues to explore the fascinating intersection of chemistry and neuroscience.

    In addition to my studies at Stanford, I remain actively involved with the BRAIN Initiative Cell Atlas Network (BICAN) project, which I joined during my time at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). This ambitious project aims to build comprehensive brain cell atlases, providing a critical molecular and anatomical foundation for understanding brain function and disorders. At UCSD, under the mentorship of Don W. Cleveland and Bogdan Bintu, I contributed to BICAN’s efforts in mapping brain cells and circuits, focusing on transformative research in regenerative medicine.

    Prior to Stanford, I earned my B.Sc./M.Sc. in Biochemistry and Chemical Biology at UCSD. My research there concentrated on the in-vivo transformation of glial cells into functional neurons, a pioneering effort in the field of neuroscience.

    Outside of my academic endeavors, I enjoy reading, exploring the realms of Artificial Intelligence, traveling, cooking, and continuously seeking to expand my skill set. I am excited about the opportunities to engage with and contribute to this vibrant professional community.
