About

I employ cotton as a model to study the molecular mechanism of physical behaviours in plant morphology, such as flower formation; I am also interested in the development, evolution and function of plant trichome. Based on these studies, I expect to uncover new aspect of the mysterious plant development, and to develop novel strategies for global challeages.
