Shu-Jin received her B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Peking University. She completed her Ph.D. in Conservation Biology from University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, USA, in 2006. She then worked at the National Cancer Institute, Maryland, as a NIH Postdoctoral Fellow, where she studied evolution, phylogeography and population genetics in the tiger, leopard cat, and other Asian species. In 2009, she became a Principal Investigator at Peking University and set up the Laboratory of Genomic Diversity and Evolution. She is a member of the IUCN Cat Specialist Group since 2005 and is broadly interested in the genomic basis of evolution and adaptation in mammalian species.
