Ji-Qing obtained a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture from National Taiwan University in Taipei, Taiwan, majoring in Entomology. He then furthered his academic studies by receiving a Master of Medical Degree in Toxicology. Ji-Qing is in the Cancer Biology PhD program and works in the Christensen lab. His interest is in exploring the association between epigenetics and outcomes in cancer patients. He is particularly interested in investigating whether methylation-derived immune cell profiles could be biomarkers for tumor recurrence of non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer. In his spare time, Ji-Qing plays the drums.
