WENQI LIU received her MS in Microbiology from the College of Life Sciences & Technology Huazhong Agricultural University in Wuhan, China. She completed her PhD in 2014 as part of the FLIES Facility with Dr. Tomberlin in the Department of Entomology at Texas A&M University. She was also co-advised by Dr. Tarone in the Department of Entomology at Texas A&M University. Her research examined the role that volatiles primarily associated with the degradation of essential amino acids played with regards to adult blow fly behavior. She also examined how these essential amino acids regulated larval bleow fly behavior. Wenqi has returned to China and is currently employed with Beijing Genomics Institute.
