Associate Professor

Molecular Ecology and Evolution of Aquatic Animals


MSc: Ecology, Gansu Agriculture University, 1998

PhD: Ecology, Ocean University of China, 2001


Research Interests

In my lab, we use DNA data to analyze genetic diversity pattern, phylogeography and phylogeny of marine creatures to infer main evolutionary drivers for their diversification and speciation. We also use environmental DNA to detect aquatic animals present in the hydro-environments.
