Graduate Student


Taipei, Taiwan


B.S. in Medical Laboratory Science & Biotechnology, Taipei Medical University, 2014

I am a graduate student in the Molecular, Cellular, and Integrative Physiology Graduate group. I grew up in Taipei, Taiwan and I graduated from Taipei Medical University in 2014 with a B.S. in Medical Laboratory Science & Biotechnology. I gained profound interest in biomedical research when I got an internship opportunity to experience as a clinical intern at Cathay General Hospital, Taipei. With the clinical experience shared with clinical colleagues and interactions with patients acquired, I can bridge the connection between knowledge I learned from textbooks with the actual clinical data and phenomena that appear on patients. It was a truly precious experience for that I understand the importance of the advancement of medical science profoundly. Therefore, before starting graduate school, I worked as a lab technician in Dr. Lin’s lab from the School of Medical Laboratory Science and Biotechnology. There, my research interest focused on understanding important factors that affect neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and Huntington’s disease.

Under the CounterACT project, my research focuses on investigating the relationship between signs of cellular senescence and OPs following exposure to OPs.

In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my friends, reading, and cooking.
