Dr Hang Ding is a research fellow at RECOVER Injury Research Centre, the Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences at The University of Queensland. He works in a research stream, led by Professor Trevor Russell, on developing innovative digital-health-based solutions to improve rehabilitation services for people with road traffic injuries. His research focuses on enabling and enhancing remote delivery of the rehabilitation services, using emerging technology applications including mHealth, wearable sensors, telehealth, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), gamification, big data analysis, and artificial intelligence (AI) based virtual assistants.

Dr Hang Ding received the PhD in Biomedical Engineering from The University Queensland. His study focused on using a nonlinear analysis approach to analyse human heart rate variability for assessing risks of ventricular fibrillation.  Before joining RECOVER, he was a research scientist at CSIRO and contributed to the design and evaluation of several leading digital-health-enabled home care programs in Australia, such as an mHealth enabled program for the self-management of COPD (the MH-COPD study) at The Prince Charles Hospital, and an innovative telemonitoring-enabled care program for chronic heart failure (the ITEC-CHF study), sponsored by The Victorian Government's Health Market Validation Program.
