Da Wang focuses on applying physics concepts to medicine for improved diagnosis and treatment for cancer patients. In particular, he has discovered multiple innovative fast magnetic resonance imaging techniques for various clinical imaging applications. This can make procedures more convenient and reduce medical costs for patients. Wang’s research interests include developing imaging radiomics methods, machine learning, and artificial intelligence auto-contouring techniques for radiation therapy, which can expedite the clinical workflow and reduce patient wait time prior to treatment.
His research has appeared in NMR in Biomedicine, Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, and Chinese Journal of Medical Imaging Technology.
Wang holds a BS and MS in physics from Peking University. He earned a PhD in biomedical physics from the University of California, Los Angeles, where he also was a visiting assistant researcher. He completed a medical physics residency at the University of Washington.
