My name is Lu Yang, under which papers are published.
But I go by Ling.
I know it's confusing ;-)
I'm a 5th-year PhD student in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University. 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, majoring in neuroscience and molecular biology. I also 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.
