I am interested in studying the cellular and molecular mechanism of mouse visual cortex development and plasticity. I use spatial transcriptomic technique to dissect molecular and cell type heterogeneity in mouse visual cortex. By using expansion microscopy-assisted FISH we can perform mRNA imaging at nanoscale resolution in whole mount section to allow us correlate function and cell type. In my free time, I am a LGBTQIA+ and minority rights activist and love mountain/resort skiing. I also like baking, watching movies, anything political, and, of course, cat parenting.
