Quick Profile

What got you interested in plants and plant science?
My grandparents worked on their farms, and I spent part of my childhood with them, being surrounded by various crops and fruit trees. All these embedded in my childhood and gave me an unforgettable impression of plants. As I grew up and went to university, I still remembered that valuable experience and wanted to apply my knowledge to plants and people who might benefit from plants. 

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Stay in academia and work as a postdoc or assistant professor if the opportunity comes.

On a Saturday afternoon, you'll likely find me:
Playing table tennis or badminton at IM West or playing video games at home.
