Fangqiong Ling leads a computational and experimental lab to study bacterial colonization and transmission at the boundary of built and natural environments. She explores microbiomes as environmental sensors and public health sentinels.
Her research employs genomics, machine learning and theory. The lab’s ultimate goal is to discover the principles underlying the diversity, functioning and resilience of microbial ecosystems and develop tools to enable ecologically aware designs. Current research topics and interests include:
Studies microbial ecosystems to improve water supply safety and public health
