I got my Master degree of Food science and Engineering at the Ocean University of China in 2014. After that, I obtained IPRS fellowship from Australian government and started my PhD as a student member of ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Cell Walls at the University of Queensland. From 2018, I am working as a postdoc researcher in Adelaide GlycoScience Research Group. My research focuses on uncovering the relationship between structure and rheological properties of plant polysaccharides. The outcome of this research extends the knowledge of how macromolecules are assembled in plant, and demonstrates the possibility of rational design of functional polysaccharides.
