Dr. Zhijie Wang received her BS degrees, in biomedical engineering from Zhejiang University (Hangzhou, China), and MS and PhD degrees in mechanical engineering from the State University of New York at Buffalo. Dr. Wang conducted her postdoctoral studies and then became a non-tenure track research faculty at University of Wisconsin - Madison in the biomedical engineering department. Since fall 2016, Dr. Wang has been a tenure-track assistant professor in the department of mechanical engineering and school of biomedical engineering at CSU, where she directs the cardiovascular biomechanics (CVB) laboratory specializing in ex vivo and in vivo cardiovascular and pulmonary mechanical/hemodynamic measurements at multiple scales. Dr. Wang’s research area includes the investigation of cardiopulmonary biomechanical mechanisms in pulmonary vascular diseases, soft tissue biomechanics such as viscoelasticity, and regenerative medicine in right heart failure. Dr. Wang has taught Quantitative Systems Physiology, which is a course given every spring semester in both the BIOM and MECH curricula (BIOM/MECH 576) and available for resident students and distance learning students.
