Research Interests

Transposable elements (TEs) are mobile DNA sequences that are widespread in the human genome. Although most TEs lost their ability to “jump” in the genome, they have been found to play important roles in gene regulation and cancer. I’m interested in identifying potentially functional TEs and understanding their role or mechanisms in gene expression regulation and cancer development.


I obtained my BS in Biomedical Engineering from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in 2016. Following that, I pursued my PhD in Bioinformatics at the Beijing Institute of Genomics. During my doctoral studies, I investigated the impact of transposon elements on the expression regulation of long non-coding RNAs, exploring their significance in cell identity and developmental processes.
