Dr Tingting Wang
PhD, Latrobe University
Dr Tingting Wang completed her PhDs in computer science at Latrobe University, Melbourne. Her PhD subject was entitled with 'Computationally efficient genomic prediction on the whole genome sequence data in dairy cattle'. The project involved the development of computationally efficient genomic prediction methods using machine learning algorithms.
In 2016, Tingting did her postdoctoral at the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources under a project titled 'MIRprofit: integrating very large genomic and milk mid-infrared data to improve profitability of dairy cows'.
In December 2017, Tingting commenced her role as a Research Officer at the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute. Currently, she is engaged in developing metabolic health score such as metabolic age and metabolic risk scores to enhance the identification of the risk of metabolic diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Soon, with the support of the Australian Cardiovascular Disease Data Commons (ACDC) project, Tingting will explore the relationship between dysregulation of lipid metabolism and cardiovascular disease. Additionally, she will contribute to the development and validation of polygenic risk scores and metabolic risk scores in various Australian cohorts.
