Biography

Dr Wu is Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Bioengineering. Her research interests are in the areas of numerical modelling of natural and synthetic polymers, biomaterials for prostheses bearing surfaces, and functional tissue engineering.

She obtained her MSc in Computer Science from Oxford University Computing Laboratory and a DPhil from Department of Engineering Science at Oxford University, where she was a Career Development Fellow before joining the University of Durham in summer 2004.

Since joining Durham, she has held and is currently holding research fundings as Principal investigator in Biomaterials for novel hip and knee prostheses as well as Tissue engineering for a number of recent projects.

She is involved in teaching the following courses: Bioengineering, Materials, Fluid Mechanics, Dynamic System Modelling, Technology for Modern World - Bioengineering and Engineering drawing.
