Wenjin Zhou becomes newest member the the CBR
Assistant Professor Wenjin Zhou, of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, has been appointed the newest member of the Center for Biomedical Research. Zhou’s research lies in computational models, interactive visualization, and information extraction from medical imaging. Currently, she aims to develop a multiscale virtual histology tool for axonal injury analysis in the brain. The tool will reveal axonal properties currently unattainable in clinical settings and bridge multiple organizational scales in the brain. You can learn more about this research in Zhou's paper Quantitative Diffusion Tensor Imaging Tractography Metrics Are Associated With Cognitive Performance Among HIV-Infected Patients (Brain Imaging and Behavior, Volume 4, Pages 68-79, 2010). Zhou has a second research interest in calculating electron protein structure; see her recent publication The Full Electron Structure of the FKBP12/FK506 Complex (Journal of Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics, DOI: 10.1080/07391102.2014.880374, with OU engineering graduate student Allison Rossetto.

Zhou arrived at OU in the fall of 2012. She earned a bachelors degree in Computer Science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and completed her Ph.D. in the Computer Science Department at Brown University, in the laboratory of Professor David Laidlaw. You can learn more about Zhou's publications at Google Scholar and Research Gate.

Zhou is the faculty coordinator of Oakland's ACM-W chapter. In Winter 2014, they hosted a WOMEN IN COMPUTING lecture series.
