Biography

Yonghui Ding is currently a postdoctoral scholar at University of Colorado Boulder researching design and 3D printing of novel photo-click biomaterials for vascular tissue engineering. He is looking for a tenure-track faculty position to build an internationally recognized research program focusing on 3D printing of mechano-accurate Disease-on-a-Chip systems for disease modeling and drug testing by leveraging his research expertise of photo-click hydrogels and 3D printing. He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and M.Phil. in Biomedical Engineering from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Hong Kong), in 2014 and 2011, respectively. His academic and research expertise is at the interface of materials science, manufacturing, stem cell engineering, and vascular tissue engineering. His research efforts have resulted in 25 high-impact journal articles (including 10 first-authored publications) and H-index of 16. He received “Best Young Scientist Award” from the 4th Asian Biomaterials Congress in 2013. He has also been looking to expand his skills as a professional STEM educator. He received “Best Teaching Assistant Award” in 2012 and attained CIRTL associate through the training program of Evidence-Based Introduction to Teaching in 2017.
