Assistant Professor of Biophysics and Physics
Professor Yang and her research team are affiliated with the departments of Biophysics, Physics, and Applied Physics. They form an interdisciplinary program and combine mathematical modeling (nonlinear dynamics theory and stochastic simulations), super-resolution imaging, and microfluidic techniques to study self-organization phenomena in living systems. Currently, the team's focus is on biological clocks. Please visit their website for further information.
