Yujia graduated from Boston University with a Bachelor Degree of Biomedical Engineering and two minors (Chemistry and Electrical engineering). She is a computational biologist studying prokaryotic gene regulation, specifically promoter switching behaviors, at Dr. Igoshin's Lab. She would like to develop an interesting story explaining when and why Bacillus subtillis goes through sporulation, and one day continue the story by engineering bacteria cells for therapeutic purposes. She is also a classical musician and enjoys playing with Shepherd School of Music friends.
