About me

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience at Karolinska Institutet, working under Dr. Joana Pereira’s supervision. Prior to KI, I obtained my Ph.D. in Psychology at Beijing Normal University in 2023 and B.E. in Biomedical Engineering at Beihang University in 2016. My research at KI focuses on the brain connectome and its association with transcriptome in aging population and neurodegenerative disorders.
