Qin Leng, Professor, received her academic training in Life Science and Earth Science. Dr. Leng's research on plant evolution and diversity, as well as paleo-environment and paleo-climate reconstruction has taken her around the globe with collaborations in Austria, China, Japan, Sweden, and United States. She has authored/co-authored over seventy peer reviewed scientific journal articles, books, and book chapters. At Bryant, she is teaching a number of courses in both Biology Program and Environmental Science Program, such as in general biology, biodiversity, physiology, botany, paleobotany, evolution, and biological imaging. She is the co-PI (principal investigator) of the Laboratory for Terrestrial Environments at Bryant University to carry out research projects in plant science (both neo-botany on living plants and paleo-botany on fossil plants) and environmental science (climate changes and their biological impacts).
