Biographical details

Dr. Zhengyu Wen was awarded a BSc (Biological Science) degree from the Northwest Agriculture and Forestry University (2010, China), a GDip. (Biotechnology) and a Ph.D (Agriculture Science) from the University of Adelaide (2015). During his PhD, Zhengyu studied the nitrate transport network in maize by characterizing nitrate transport proteins.

Zhengyu has recently been employed by the School of Life and Environmental Sciences at the University of Sydney as a postdoctoral researcher. He is now participating an ARC discovery project aiming to investigate the bHLHm1 regulated AMF1 ammonium transport pathway in legume and other dicot plant species.

Research interests

Zhengyu is a plant physiologist keen on investigating the plant nutrient transport system, especially the nitrogen transport network. His skill set, molecular biology and electrophysiology, allow him to functionally characterize membrane transport proteins and to identify key residue controlling transporters’ characteristics. He is also interested in understanding how plant transport system is regulated according to the environment nitrogen status.
