My Research Background

I obtained my bachelor's degree of Engineering (BEng) in chemical engineering at Dalian Univeristy of Technology, China in 2019. I moved to the University of Manchester to get my Master's in Biomaterials (MSc). Then I took a gap year as a research assistant at Shanghai Jiaotong University and came back to Manchester to pursue my doctorate degree with BBSRC CASE studentship. I had an electrochemcial based project for my first year to measure the oxygen consumption of the xenopus laevis embryo but it did not work out as we expected. I am now working on the mice (cd1 strain) embryos to investigate the long-term metabolic effects of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and embryo transfer conditions on cardiac mitochondria. 

I have developed skills in: 

  • spectrophotometer

  • Oroboros high-resolution respirometry

  • IVF and embryo manipulation
