IIASA Alumnus Evolution and Ecology
Hui-Yu Wang joined the Evolution and Ecology Program (EEP) at IIASA as a guest research scholar in May 2019. She is working on a project exploring temperature effects on life history expression for fishes.
Dr. Wang obtained her bachelor’s degree in zoology at National Taiwan University (NTU) in 1999, and both her master’s degree and PhD at the University of Michigan, in 2003 and 2009, respectively. At Michigan, she studied movement, life history variation, and fishing-induced ecological and evolutionary effects on growth and maturation for temperate freshwater fishes. She then worked as a postdoctoral researcher and a part-time instructor of biostatistics at the Department of Environmental Conservation, University of Massachusetts, from 2009 to 2011. For her postdoctoral research, she explored temperature effects on population life history expression and population dynamics based on Atlantic cod and Atlantic salmon. She started as an assistant professor at the Division of Marine Biology & Fisheries, Institute of Oceanography (IO), NTU, in 2011, and is currently an associate professor at IO NTU. Her current research focuses on population variation in life history traits in different thermal environments, based on the exploited cutlassfishes Trichiurus sp. and various reef fishes across a latitudinal gradient in the northwestern Pacific.
Dr. Wang’s research interests involve life history variation, population dynamics, and ecological and evolutionary modeling of fishes. She is especially interested in combining empirical data and theoretical eco-evolutionary modeling to develop a general understanding of the relationships between life history traits and population dynamics.
