The whitefly Bemisia tabaci is a cryptic species complex, causing damage through direct feeding and transmission of begomoviruses. My research focuses on the interactions between the whitefly vectors and begomoviruses, particularly signal transduction systems of the whitefly that may play important roles in virus transmission.

I obtained my BSc degree in Plant Protection from Nanjing Agriculture University in 2015. During my BSc study, I worked on eukaryote expression of cadherin mutation gene r1 associated with Cry1Ac resistance in the cotton bollworm Helicoverpa armigera.
