Prior to joining the Sharpe’s lab, Di was a PhD student under the supervision of Jean-Francois Brunet in École Normale Supérieure, Paris from 2014 to 2018. Afterwards, she had one year postdoc research in Brunet’s lab. As a developmental neuroscientist, her research focused on the ontogene of the peripheral gustatory pathways.
She joined the Centre for Craniofacial & Regenerative Biology (CCRB) in Oct, 2019. Presently she is working within Sharpe’s lab as postdoc research associate. Her research includes characterising a quiescent reservoir stem cell population for accelerating mouse incisor’s growth and studying the role of its related signalling pathways.
