Hey, I'm Ling.
I'm Lu Yang, but I go by Ling -- yes, it's only to confuse people :-p.
I'm a 4th-year PhD student in Peter Andolfatto's Lab in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University. My research focuses on the convergent evolution of toxin resistance in insects, amphibians and reptiles. By integrating tools of comparative genomics, molecular genetics and biochemistry, I want to understand the genetics of adaptive traits and evaluate the dynamics of adaptation.
Prior to graduate school I went to Peking University in Beijing, China for undergraduate, where I gained experiences in molecular genetics and functional genomics. I also worked as a part-time photographer and graphic designer in college. Feel free to get in touch about science, graduate school, or photography.
