“Apart from science, I like reading, stargazing and swimming.”


Research Assistant

My interests cover bacterial secretion mechanism, bacterial antimicrobial resistance, bacteria-phage interaction and bioinformatics. Now my project is associated with the isolation of Klebsiella phages and Acinetobacter phages in China. I hope to evaluate protein structures predicted from phage genomes, especially proteins in the tails of phages.
