Hi, I’m Chinese, but from Italy and currently I am attending the Genomics course at the university of Bologna. It deals with multiple aspects of the scientific research, from biology to bioinformatics and biostatistics.

As my main interest falls in the field of molecular and cellular biology, especially cell fate determination and differentiation, joining Claudia’s lab gives me a great opportunity to learn about those developmental processes through 3D organoids and trophoblast stem cells.

In my free time, I enjoy baking, listening to music and hanging out with my friends. Moreover, I love travelling, so I often organise one-day trips and plan short and low-cost holidays. My biggest dream is to see the Northern lights one day.
