After her master’s at Columbia University, and internship with WWF Beijing and Wildlife Conservation Society NY, she shifted her interest to wildlife conservation. Yurong’s PhD focuses on investigating how transportation infrastructures pose potential risks to regional biodiversity on a global scale. The overall goal is to create a new evidence-based way of assessing the impacts and then develop a global wildlife conservation policy framework.
