My research interest lies in the broad fields of Synthetic Biology with the aim to combine biochemical studies with mathematical modeling to better understand the “design” features of the genome. This knowledge will inform the design of next generation synthetic platforms for biotechnology and bioremediation.

My research interest is translational research of finding new targets to improve curative effect in breast cancer treatment. My previous project was about studying the effect of autophagy in breast cancer cell lines. Currently I'm studying on discovering the mechanism of ER reprograming and how it affects the fate of breast cancer and resistance against ER-targeted therapy
