Piercing insects, such as whitefly, aphid and leafhopper, which damage crops by sucking phloem sap and transmission of plant viruses, are generally resistant to genetically modified crops expressed Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) proteins. My study focuses on developing novel control strategies against those insects, such as strategies based on RNA interference and anti-insect proteins. Also, I investigate the application of phloem-specific promoters.

I obtained my BSc degree in Plant Protection from Northeast Agricultural University in 2017.
