Portrait of Julia Yang
she, her, hers

Julia Yang earned her bachelor's degrees in Environmental Studies and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology from the University of Kansas. She developed her research in biogeochemistry with the support of the Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD) – a federal program and community dedicated to increasing diversity in STEM. Now in the UA Geography department, she will investigate how ecosystems interact with a changing global environment across large spatial scales—in particular, changes related to land use and climate. In her free time, Julia is a dedicated rock climber and outdoor adventurer.
