Wing Ying Chow (they/she) is an Assistant Professor in Physics in the Solid-state NMR group at the University of Warwick. She is interested in applying solid-state NMR to investigate chemical and biological structures of the extracellular matrix, especially in contexts with relevance to human health and disease.
Ying joined Warwick in February 2022. Prior to joining Warwick, she was a postdoctoral researcher funded by the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) at the Interdisciplinary Research Institute of Grenoble (IRIG) in France working with Sabine Hediger and Gaël de Paëpe. In 2014-2019, she worked at the Leibniz-Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) in Berlin, Germany with Hartmut Oschkinat. She obtained her PhD in 2014 from the University of Cambridge, UK, under the supervision of Melinda Duer.
Ying's research is motivated by two questions:
- What chemical and mechanical signals are found in the extracellular environment?
- How can we detect and characterize these signals, mostly in the form of molecules, using magnetic resonance?
If you are interested in being part of a research team working at the interface of biology, physics, and chemistry, please contact Ying for opportunities to join the group.
We welcome contact from prospective students and postdocs who are looking to do gound-breaking research at the interface of biology, physics, and chemistry. We are committed to supporting and promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion. We especially encourage applications from underrepresented groups in science.
