Researcher biography

Before enrolling at UQ, I completed my Master’s degree in Forensic Genetics in Sun Yat-sen University, China. My previous research mainly focused on the identification of unrelated or related male individuals in Chinese populations. At UQ I have joined the Complex Trait Genomics program and continue to be interested in exploring potential applications of phenotype prediction based on genetic or epigenetic data in forensic practice. The outcomes can hopefully serve as “biological witness”, and may potentially provide even more accurate information than that provided by human eyewitnesses. I looks forward to exploring the practical applications of successful innovations to investigating crime and prosecuting offenders in the context of global change.

Ying's principal advisor is Professor Peter Visscher.
