RESEARCH INTERESTS

My work mainly focuses on scale worms, a large group of polychaetes (Polychaeta, Annelida). They are found almost everywhere in the sea, including hydrothermal vents, cold seeps and whale-falls. My present work is about the adaption of scale worms in deep sea environment and their phylogeny based on mitochondrial genome.
