Dr. Wang is an Associate Professor in the Joint Department of BME, School of ECE, WCI, IBB, and IPaT at Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University, USA. She is a GCC Distinguished Cancer Scholar, a Co-Director of Georgia-Tech Center of Bio-Imaging Mass Spectrometry, and an active participant in FDA-led Microarray Quality Control and Sequencing Consortium (MAQC-SEQC). She received PhDEE, MSEE/MSCS/MS-AppliedMath from Georgia-Tech, B.S.Eng from Tsinghua University, and had several years of industrial R&D experience. Her research is on Big Biomedical Data Analytics — Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI) for Personalized and Predictive Health (e.g. Next-Generation-Sequencing -omic data mining, pathological imaging informatics, health informatics, bionanoinformatics, and systems modeling). She published 140+ peer-reviewed articles, with a few tools certified by NIH/National Cancer Informatics Program as silver-level compatible. She serves as Co-Chair of IEEE-EMBS BHI Technical Committee, Senior Editor for Journal of BHI, and a 2014-2015 IEEE-EMBS Distinguished Lecturer.
