I was born in Chongqing, China. I graduated from Tsinghua University with bachelor’s degree in Chemical and Biological Engineering in 2009. My diploma project was on computational enzyme design and under the guidance of Prof. Yushan Zhu, and was awarded Excellent Diploma Project.

My current research focuses on the dynamics of the processes of scientific publication and citation. Specifically, I am interested in identifying structural key factors leading to transformative research.
