Professional experience

Following her doctorate, Qihui Yang worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Kansas State University, where she worked closely with Caterina Scoglio on studying COVID-19 transmission with non-Markovian models.


Yang’s research focuses on developing theory and computational tools to study the spreading processes of infectious diseases, such as foot-and-mouth disease, African swine fever and COVID-19. She contributed to two National Science Foundation projects at K-State. In these projects, her research focused on the modeling of complex systems and analysis of the system robustness against biosecurity threats.

Academic Highlights

Yang received the 2020-2021 Outstanding Graduate Research in Biosecurity award from the Carl R. Ice College of Engineering. She received the Robert I‐Jen and Sophia Shui‐Kan Jung graduate scholarship in engineering in 2017 and 2018, respectively.
