I received a double degree of B.S. in Life Science and D.V.M from National Taiwan University in 2014. Because my intellectual interests have led me to study ecology of wildlife diseases, I have been pursuing a Ph.D. degree in ecology since 2016. I am interested in wildlife disease, movement and mammal ecology.


I am currently a Ph.D. student in Dr. Wendy Turner's lab at University of Wisconsin-Madison studying anthrax transmission and dynamics in herbivorous wildlife in Etosha National Park, Namibia and Kruger National Park, South Africa

Born, raised, and educated in Taiwan, I have various experience studying different animal taxa. Before I came to the U.S., I had worked with nematodes in cetaceans (undergraduate researcher), alopecia in macaques (research assistant), rabies in small carnivores (research assistant), and birds of prey (member in RRGT).
