My research in NYUAD is focusing on nuclear function of beta-actin in genome organization, gene expression control and cell identity regulation. I am also discovering some previously unnoticed function of beta-actin in cell biology.

I did my undergraduate and Master in Hong Kong, in Molecular biology, focusing on Cancer research. Then I finished my PhD in MRC-Laboratory of Molecular Biology, University of Cambridge in 2015. PhD projects focuses on the functional analysis of Foxp3 protein in gene expression control in regulatory T cells, molecular immunology perspective.

I joined NYUAD in 2016 and my research here is focusing on nuclear function of beta-actin in genome organization, gene expression control and cell identity regulation. I am also discovering some previously unnoticed function of beta-actin in cell biology.
