Bio
My prime interest focuses on mechanism of activation of brown / beige adipose tissue using a variety of cellular and animal models. I am also interested in investigation on small molecules in the fat tissues or functional analysis of the molecules in trans-differentiation of white to beige adipocytes, such as functional microRNAs, at this conversion step in the adipocytes. Besides science, I also like reading books and playing soccer. My dream is to become a scientist with valuable contributions or a famous soccer player.
