I am a senior scientist ORCID working at Natural Resources Institute Finland (LUKE).

My chief research visions center on:

  • Statistical models in quantitative genetics and genomics
  • Computational genetics and software development for genetic/genomic prediction
  • New traits and high-throughput phenotyping in animal breeding

I received a BS in animal science in 2006, from China Agricultural University, and a PhD in quantitative genetics in 2012, from Aarhus University. I did my postdoc at Aarhus University and Nordic Cattle Genetic Evaluation NAV, 2013–2017. After my postdoc, I had continued working as a researcher/assistant professor at QGG, Aarhus University until late 2021. For more information, you can find my CV here. The best way to reach me is via email.

I had lived in Denmark for nearly 10 years. At the moment, I am living in a small town in Finland. I love Nordic countries.
