My goal in life is to understand as much about the beautiful world around me as possible. After studying chemistry and physics as an undergraduate in University of Science and Technology of China and later a graduate student at University of California Berkeley, I had an in-depth understanding of the inanimate world but knew little about how life works. Particularly attracted to the problems of the brain, the organ that defines me as a person but whose inner workings still evade us, I moved to Janelia and worked with Eric Betzig on improving the speed and resolution of in vivo brain imaging. I started my own group here in 2011, where, in addition to imaging technology development, my lab also apply the resulting techniques to outstanding problems in neurobiology.
