Personal profile

Chinese Name



Dr. Qianyuan Tang is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics at Hong Kong Baptist University. He received his Ph.D. in Physics, with a specialization in biophysics, from Nanjing University in 2017. After completing his doctoral studies, Dr. Tang worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Physics, Hong Kong Baptist University. He then moved to Japan to work as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Tokyo from November 2017 to March 2021, and later as a Research Scientist at the RIKEN Center for Brain Sciences from April 2021 to January 2023.

Dr. Tang's research leverages advanced computational and data-driven approaches to simplify complex biological systems and uncover the universal laws governing their behaviours. His interdisciplinary research program draws on computational, statistical, and mathematical techniques to analyze complex biological data. By utilizing large datasets and AI-based methods, Dr. Tang aims to better understand the underlying mechanisms of diseases and develop new treatments to improve human health.
