I joined University of Exeter in 2021 as a PhD student in the Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and metabolism group. My PhD is supported jointly by University of Exeter and China Scholarship Council (CSC).

PhD project description: My project aims to investigate and compare the correlations between different NO biomarkers (nitrate, nitrite, S-nitrothiols) in different blood compartments and skeletal muscle and cardiovascular health and exercise performance following dietary nitrate supplementation in humans.  I am also interested in exploring the influences of dietary nitrate ingestion on mitochondria respiration efficiency both in vivo and in vitro.

Supervisors: Prof. Andrew Jones and Prof. Anni Vanhatalo

I work as a postgraduate teaching associate (PTA) in the Department of Public Health and Sports Sciences. I am involved in teaching seminars and lab practicals for undergraduate modules ESS1703 Bioenergetics, ESS3707 Physiological determinants of exercise performance, and ESS1007 Human Physiology. I was also a member of the Ethics helpdesk for final year undergraduate dissertations.
