At NISS, he worked with his postdoc advisor Dr. Nell Sedransk on the project on cancer proteomics with published papers in refereed journals based on the analysis of the data.

Time at NISS
I had a great time at NISS. My work with Dr. Nell Sedransk was on a project in cancer proteomics. A couple of interesting works have been published in good journals. I often recall those impressive moments in NISS, which are colorful and invaluable. One of my most important life moments happened while I was a NISS Postdoc: I became a father of two boys. Now my family and I enjoy everyday life in China.
