Institute of Plant and Microbial Biology/Institute of Molecular Biology
I have been trained as a plant physiologist/biochemist with additional experience in bioinformatics and molecular biology. Using Arabidopsis and rice as research materials for over ten years, I have a strong interest in translating the information obtained from basic research in model systems for the improvement of crop plants. My undergraduate and graduate research had been focusing on the molecular mechanism of Arabidopsis photomorphogenisis, I am a postdoctoral fellow working in the laboratory of Dr. Tuan-Hua David Ho at Institute of Plant Biology, Academia Sinica. I have been working on improvement of agricultural waste disposal by utilizing highly active lignocellulolytic enzymes.In the meantime, we are investigating the physiological functions of RePRPs, a family of monocot-specific proline-rich proteins that act as integrators for both abiotic and biotic stress responses. We aim to understand its underlying mechanism and translate the knowledge into crop improment.
