About me - Guanyang Zhang
I am a postdoctoral researcher at the the Arizona State University, working at the Franz Lab of Insect Systematics and Evolution and Biodiversity Informatics (led by Dr. Nico Franz). Focusing on weevils (Curculionidae), my current projects encompass taxonomy, phylogenetics, phylogenomics, biogeography, bacterial symbiosis and host plant associations. I obtained a PhD in Entomology from the University of California, Riverside. My past research concerned the taxonomy, systematics, comparative morphology, natural history and evolution of Reduviidae or assassin bugs, conducted in the Heteroptera Systematics Lab (led by Dr. Christiane Weirauch).
