Mr Yu Wan

BSc, Zhejiang University | MSc, University of Melbourne

Yu is a joint PhD student with Dr Kathryn Holt (Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) and Prof Justin Zobel (Computing andInformation Systems). He completed his bachelor degree in automation at Zhejiang University, China, in 2008. Then he worked as an IP network engineer for two and a half years and an editor of a scientific magazine for another half a year.

He became a MSc student in bioinformatics at the University of Melbourne in 2013 and joined our lab after his graduation. His research focuses on the network of bacterial horizontal gene transfer, which is closely related to hospital-acquired transmission of antibiotic-resistance genes and disease outbreaks. Yu immerses himself in microscopy and travelling in his spare time.
