Personal profile

Curriculum vitae

I obtained my MSc degree in medicine from Beijing Normal University, 2014, China. I then studied synergistic interaction of potyvirus and crinivirus and their interaction with plants at the Department of Agricultural Sciences, University of Helsinki. The project included identification of chemical inhibitors for viral RNase III and phenotyping viral infection in sweetpotato plants using imaging-based methods. I completed her PhD in May 2020. As my postdoctoral project I am interested in studying resistance breeding by targeting potyviral host susceptibility factors. My main research interests are to obtain detailed information on the molecular mechanisms underlying virus infection in plants and to eliminate virus diseases from the crop plants either by using viral inhibitors or by breeding for virus-resistance.
