Summary

Jie Yang joined the University of Hull in January 2021 as a Lecturer in Applied Mathematics. She has a PhD in Systems Biology from the University of Manchester, UK, and a BSc (Hons) in Mathematics from Imperial College London, UK. Her principal research interests involve the use of applied mathematics for biological applications. She is currently the Deputy Director of the Centre for Mathematical Sciences.

Jie was awarded a NSFC Research Fund for International Young Scientists of 400,000 RMB as PI on a project entitled “An investigation into predictive modelling of the impact of air pollution on China’s disease burden” (Project code: 21750110446) and a NSFC-DFG International Joint Research Programme grant of 2.088 Million RMB as Co-I on a project entitled “Investigation on gas-liquid-solid three phase flow coupled with meso-scale solid-bubble interactions, solid-liquid turbulence and bubble induced turbulence in bubble column reactors" (Project code: 21761132026).

Previously, she was an Assistant Professor in Applied Mathematics/ Statistics at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC). Her other previous work experience includes working as a Research Fellow at the National University of Singapore investigating the spread of Zika and respiratory diseases, a Research Associate at Imperial College London studying helminth treatment strategies and a Research Fellow at the University of Exeter investigating biofuel production through the use of mathematical modelling.
