Master’s student
(September 2017 – present)

Born in Zhejiang province, I spent the first 18 years of my life in Southeast China. Then I started my undergraduate degree in the College of Horticulture, Northwest A&F University in Shaanxi Province from Sept. 2013 and received the Bachelor’s degree in July 2017.

Currently, I’m a master student in the Castellarin lab in the Wine Research Centre. I’m studying the impact of different temperature regimes on the accumulation of secondary metabolites in grapes during the ripening process. To be more specific, we are examining how the increasing temperatures in BC will affect the flavonoid accumulation and the underlying mechanisms in grapes. This project could generally be divided into two parts. First, we will explore how grape composition evolves during their ripening process under different temperature regimes. Additionally, we will analyze the genetic expression of the pathway involved in the ripening process.

Other than scientific research, I am a girl who’s passionate about life. I like reading, traveling, and baking. I also like making friends with people from different backgrounds. I believe love is color blind, while life is colorful!
