Biography

Dr. Dongjie Wang received her doctoral degree in Nutrition and Food Sciences in 2012 from The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia. Her PhD project is a part of a huge project of National Institute of Health of the USA. Her PhD project is related to the metabolism of grape seed phenolic extract by intestinal bacteria. Dr. Wang finished her in vitro experiment at UQ by using porcine models and her in vivo experiment at Purdue University of USA by using rat models. Her supervision team includes Dr. Bruce D’Arcy and Dr. Barbara Williams from UQ and Professor Mario Ferruzzi from Purdue University (now professor at North Carolina State University).

After graduation, Dr. Wang joined Australia Research Council Center (ARC) of Excellence in Plant Cell Wall as a research scientist for four years. She directly reported to Professor Michael J. Gidley, Dean of the center.

Dr. Wang joined the college of Food Engineering and Biotechnology, Tianjin University of Science and Technology (TUST) in 2016.
