My name is Lu Yang, under which papers are published.
But I go by Ling ;-)
I'm a 5th-year PhD student in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University, and now a visiting student at Columbia University with Professor Peter Andolfatto.
My research focuses on the evolution of toxin resistance in insects and vertebrates. By combining genomic tools and gene editing, I want to understand the genetic basis of adaptive traits and how adaptation is constrained.
Prior to graduate school I went to Peking University in Beijing, China for undergraduate. I worked as a part-time photographer and graphic designer back then.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my bunny, reading and writing popular science articles, fashion, and photography.
