Biography

After receiving a Bachelor of Engineering, Computer Science from Xi’an University of Technology in China, Ms Wang worked as a software engineer for three and half years.

In 2004, she was awarded a Master of Applied Science, Bioinformatics from the University of Sydney, Australia, where she went on to undertake her PhD in Bioinformatics, which was linkage mapping, map integration and comparative mapping of the Australian model marsupial tammar wallaby.

In 2010, Ms Wang took up a position Research Officer at the Institute of Molecular Bioscience at the University of Queensland, in Brisbane, Australia. In this role, Ms Wang was responsible for conducting research in multi-focal prostate cancer microarray expression data, which involves data analysis using existing bioinformatics tools and programming; Also supervising students in the group in research projects of interologs of proteins in orthologous species.

In early 2012, Ms Wang joined the Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centre where she continues multi-focal prostate cancer study using microarray expression data as well as Comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) data from a cohort of 10 multi-focal prostate cancer patients.

Research interests
