Biographical details

Dr Wu received her PhD degree from Department of Medicine, University of Sydney in 2009 and her MSc degree in School of Biological Sciences, University of Sydney in 2002. While her Master thesis focused on the QacA-mediated multidrug resistance in Staphylococci, her PhD thesis investigated HIV-host interactions in relation to disease status and therapy effects by proteome and transcriptome analyses.

After her PhD graduation, she worked as a research fellow at the University of Newcastle and further developed her bioinformatics skills in genome-wide association study, identification of molecular biomarkers, and investigation of gene pathways, networks and interactions. In 2011, she was awarded the NHMRC early career fellowship.

Throughout her career, she has continuously applied the state-of-the-art genomic technology platforms (e.g. next generation sequencing) to answer biological questions. Working in different labs and collaborating with professionally diverse groups have greatly enhanced her multidisciplinary skills (e.g. microbiology, immunology, and bioinformatics), which builds up her integrative thinking with a broad research vision. In 2016, she joined the University of Sydney for comparative genomics research on rust fungi.

Research interests

Dr. Wu is interested in understanding the plant-pathogen interactions using multiple bioinformatics approaches, including integrative genomics, next generation sequencing, RNA-seq, transcriptome profiling, microRNA profiling, gene expression and regulation, genome-wide association, genetic analysis, pathway analysis, and identification of molecular markers.
