  Office: State Key Laboratory of Crop Stress Biology for Arid Areas, 2208.  

  Research Interests:

  Our group is focused on the molecular mechanism and regulation of plant ion channels in drought, elevated CO2 and heavy metal stress in Arabidopsis . We combine electrophysiological, biochemical, molecular genetics and physiological approaches to identify and characterize new mechanism and cascades in ion channel regulation.

  Our research will provide knowledge basis for improvement of crops such as Maize and Wheat important agronomic traits through the study of abiotic stress response signal transduction in Arabidopsis .  

  Education Experiences:

  China Agriculture University, Plant Science, Ph.D. 2013.02.

  Inner Mongolia University, Molecular biology, B. S. 2007.06.
