Trang Dang joined the Institute of the Environment in 2017 as a postdoctoral research associate in the interdisciplinary program Bridging Biodiversity and Conservation Science (BBCS): Forecasting Future Operating Environments. Her work explores the connectivity between human and natural systems, particularly focusing on biodiversity, emerging infectious diseases, and health security. Trang received her PhD in integrative biology from Oregon State University and her BS in biological sciences from Virginia Tech. Her previous research in multiple infectious disease systems explored disease ecology, host-parasite interactions, and parasite virulence. Trang's past work also included studying public health challenges and healthy aging through an interdisciplinary NSF Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) fellowship in aging sciences.
