My former research involves 1) molecular immunology of aquaculture mollusks, and 2) embryo genesis and larval development of marine invertebrates, including mollusk, polychaetae, and invertebrate chordates. My current research focuses on 1) the adaptive mechanisms of marine invertebrates to the deep-sea hydrothermal vent and cold-seep environments, and 2) the symbiosis of deep-sea invertebrates.
