Since November 2017, I am a Postdoctoral Associate in Dr. Xing's lab.
My research interests are in genomics and human genetics. Currently, I study the genetics underlying female infertility.
Advanced maternal age is an established factor responsible for difficulties in conceiving, and growing evidence suggests genetic factors also exist.
Through the analysis of whole exome sequencing data, I look for disease-causing genes that contribute to the production of aneuploid eggs and female infertility.
Identification of genetic factors that contribute to the production of aneuploid eggs and female infertility.
