研究兴趣:
本人对动物的分子进化遗传学、比较基因组学、分子系统发育和分子生态学等领域有着广泛的兴趣,感兴趣的动物类群包括哺乳动物(如鲸类、啮齿类和蝙蝠)、农林昆虫(如萤火虫、瓢虫)等。主要研究兴趣包括(1)动物对不同环境的适应性进化机制;(2)功能基因的分子进化(如视觉、听觉、嗅觉和味觉等);(3)种群遗传学和分子系统地理学(如性选择对物种形成的遗传学机制)。
Research Interests:
I am broadly interested in molecular evolutionary genetics, comparative genomics,molecular ecology and molecular phylogenetics in animals, such as mammals (e.g. whales, rodents and bats) and insects (e.g. fireflies and ladybirds). Specifically, my major interest is to develop or test evolutionary hypotheses on (i) genetic basis of adaptation in different environments; (ii) molecular evolution of sensory genes (e.g. vision, hearing, olfaction and taste receptor genes); (iii) population genetics and molecular biogeography (e.g. the genetic basis of speciation driven by sexual selection).
