The main task of the treasury office is to ensure the financial stability of the Society by managing expenses and finding new sources of funding. This office is working in close relationship with an administrator from Umeå University and a member of the Advisory Board.
I come from Taiwan and grew up in Chiayi which is famous for turkey rice and the mountain railway. I finished my bachelor’s at a local university surrounded by pineapple farms. I got both my master’s and PhD at Yang-Ming University in Taipei, where I did my thesis about the Type III secretion system in pathogenic E. coli. After moving to Umeå University for my second postdoc, I have been studying the Type 4 secretion system in Enterococcus faecalis from the perspective of protein structure and biochemistry. Outside of research, I am interested in chatting about history, culture, and language with people from different countries. Enjoying movies with pizza and beer is something that I would love to be invited or invite people to do. I joined UPS because I would like to be involved in a local community not only to know more people but also to learn to cooperate with people to keep society running prosperously.
