Dr. Ling is a Monarch scientist who appeared in the 2019 Legendary Pictures Godzilla film, Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

A third-generation member of Monarch, Ling and her twin sister Dr. Ilene Chen investigated accounts from loggers in China's Yunnan province of haunting singing in the forest at night, which they connected with ancient accounts of singing forests spirits. She and her sister guided a Monarch team led by Dr. Emma Russell to the ancient Temple of the Moth, where inside they discovered a cocoon containing the mythological Titan Titanus Mosura, known to the ancients as Mothra.

After Mothra escaped from Outpost 61 and cocooned under a waterfall in the Yunnan rainforest, Dr. Ling was one of the Monarch scientists sent to monitor the situation. As Dr. Houston Brooks observed King Ghidorah's mass awakening of all the planet's Titans from inside a tent, Ling remained outside in the rain observing Mothra's cocoon. Brooks soon joined her as the rain suddenly stopped and the cocoon began to hatch. Ling witnessed as the imago Mothra crawled from the cocoon and spread her glowing wings.
