As a Biology Master’s student I study social cognition in social cichlids and the transmission of information within the social group in different species. As a vet, I’m also interested in animal health and its impact on behaviour, particularly in aquatic organisms.”

Bin obtained his degree BSc in Aquaculture from Southwest University (China) in 2015, and his MSc in Environmental Science from Dalian Ocean University (China) in 2019. He studies the ways social contexts affect behaviour and autonomic stress responses in social cichlids. He is also interested in understanding how the brain and behavior can be shaped by the social environment. Bin has funded a 4-year scholarship by the China Scholarship Council.
