About Me

Hi, everyone. I am a PhD student in the Lord Lab and working on Braconid systematics. Currently, I am conducting a revisionary work of Cardiochilinae, which has been insufficiently studied. Several papers will be published soon in 2020. I am so delighted to be a member of the Lord Lab and looking forward to learning more about insects.
