Lianxin Yang was born in Nantong city, southeast China, in 1966. Dr. Yang holds a B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 1992, 1995, and 2002, respectively, from Yangzhou University. He is now working as a Full Professor at the same University. His research focuses on the crop response to rising atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration (CO2) and/or tropospheric ozone (O3) and its mechanisms. He has research experience in global change biology in Japan and Germany. His current research platforms include the free-air gas concentration enrichment (FACE) facilities and closed-top chamber for carbon dioxide or ozone fumigation. Much of his work involves developing and testing hypotheses on plant environmental responses under chamber conditions and then testing these in large scale field conditions. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed papers concerning atmospheric change biology.
