Research Interests

My research interests are focused on how RNA methylations affect on insect development particularly on insect metamorphosis. I use the model insect, Tribolium castaneum, to identify the important players and study them. Many technologies like RNAi, RNA-seq and miCLIP will be utilized to help me uncover the role of RNA methylation in insect development.
