Work experience

From 2009 to 2011, she was in Fudan University as a postdoctoral fellow, engaged in the synthesis of nanomaterials for molecular imaging. During the years of 2012 and 2013, Dr. Yang was in the department of Regenerative Medicine and Cell Biology, Medical University of South Carolina, USA as a postdoctoral fellow. In order to enhance research level, Dr. Yang further made research cooperation with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and took office in University of Louisville in USA as a postdoctoral researcher from 2013 to 2014. Since January 2015, she joined the School of Electronic Information and Electrical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
