Yang Wei is an entrepreneur, real estate investor, and mother of two children, including Justin. She completed her Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and a Master’s degree in electrical engineering at Tsinghua University. Sponsored by Cornell University, Yang came to the United States for a better life.
Her latest project is her company, QM Simulations. QM Simulations is a biomedical company aimed at creating an artificial intelligence capable of matching specific drugs at target receptors. Through artificial intelligence and machine learning, test trials are repeated continuously until her algorithm can be verified as accurate.
Yang says her happiest time is “when the family is together.” She decided to keep her maiden name, as per tradition in China. Her schedule is always busy, trying to juggle her home, research, health, and personal life. When she has the opportunity, she loves to relax, unwind, and watch a movie at the movie theater.
According to Yang, health is the most crucial factor in life. Yang enjoys running in marathons and participating in triathlons. She also encourages Justin to take care of his health. Justin is pushed to exercise, eat healthily, and sleep well.
Yang’s moral is this: “love, hope, and dreams are worth fighting for, and when you have them, never let them go.”
