Main interests: Sámi Traditional Healing, integration of scientific research and traditional knowledge - Sámi and Chinese. PhDs in physics 1989 (USA) and in public health 2018 (Sweden).
Jing is currently a researcher in the Faculty of Art and Humanities in Sámi study - the European Arctic Indigenous people. She was a trained mathematical modeller in public health and a physicist with two PhDs, one in Public Health (Umeå University 2018) and one in Physics (University of Michigan 1989). Jing has published 77 scientific articles in physics and public health. Her current research is about Sámi Traditional Healing, and its comparison withTraditional Chinese Medicine using research methods of literature reviews and qualitative interviews. Her main research interests are Arctic well-being with focus on integration of scientific research and traditional knowledge of Arctic Indigenous people and Chinese medicine.
Her previous research in public health was to study the relationship between climate change and health. She developed mathematical models for vector-borne disease (dengue) and Aedes mosquitoes, and their future projections under various climate change scenarios to support climate mitigation. She was born in China and lived in USA for 20 years before moving to Sweden in 2004. Jing was formerly a professor in Physics from California State University Long Beach with over 20 years of physics research in quantum optics and soft condensed matter physics - magnetorheological fluids. She also has experience in Chinese medicine in the area of disease prevention and lifestyle consultation. In addition, she gives public lecturer/workshops on promoting well-being from body, mind and spirit.
