I received my bachelors and masters degree of environmental science from Anhui University and the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, respectively. My previous research area mainly focuses on the biodegradation kinetics and QSAR study of PBDEs. These experiences excited my interest on the environmental behavior of POPs, so I decided to go on my study in this area.

Human toxicology program is the best choice for me, where I  could combine my interest and previous experiences on organic contaminants. In China there are many people suffering from environmental pollution, so it is very important to learn how contaminants influence human health. After my graduation, I would like to come back to hometown and do some research work about POPs contamination for the local people’s health.
