RuiRui Wang is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Medical group at ARC. Rui defended her PhD thesis “Cardiovascular risk factors, brain structure, and cognitive decline in old age: a population-based study” at ARC in 2015. Her research interests include:
(1) distribution and patterns of cardiovascular risk factors (e.g., hypertension, diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, physical inactivity, alcohol consumption, and smoking) in older adults;
(2) vascular risk factors and microstructural white matter integrity in old age;
(3) cerebral small vessel diseases.

Rui has a Medical Degree from the Shandong University, Jinan, China. She also holds a Master of Epidemiology and Biostatistics from Shandong University (2007). Her master’s thesis focused on the Ecological Study of drug-resistant tuberculosis in a global perspective by using Structural Equation Modelling.
