I am a senior undergraduate from China studying biochemistry and physics, and I have been working in the Glukhov lab since my freshman year. My research has focused on how RyR2 mutation associated ventricular phenotypes associated with the atria and sinoatrial node activities using both rabbit and human stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes models. In addition to my lab work, I love music and have been a member of a school orchestra and a music club.
