Academic Achievements

    With marine crustaceans as the research object, progresses have been made on the research of the taxonomy and phylogenetic evolution of marine crustaceans from offshore to deep sea by integrating morphological and molecular data. In recent five years, I have published 18 papers, attended international and domestic academic conference 5 times and given oral reports. I have led 4 research projects, including National Natural Science Foundation of China, the Senior User Project of RV KEXUE and the Strategic Priority Research Program of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
