His research has focused on plant reaction to abiotic stress, specifically the impact on molecular mechanisms, germination, and flowering time at the epigenetic level. Recognized as an “outstanding talent” by the Hundred Talents Program of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Dr. Hu was the Principal Investigator at the Kunming Institute of Botany from 2009 until 2015. His long-term goal is to identify which genes and mechanisms can lead to the development of sustainable agriculture and ecology.
