Wenpeng has had extensive education background in biology and life science teaching, nursing, and medicine. His broad knowledge in nutrition, diet, aetiologies of non-communicable diseases, human biology and evolution of human lifestyle and birth behaviours has enabled him extensively to publish in multiple areas, such as medicine and nursing.
Wenpeng has a diverse and rich career spanning over 20 years across the education, healthcare and food industries. His academic learning and work experience have developed his well-honed professional and interpersonal skills which equipped him to teach in the fields of nursing, epidemiology, pharmacology, gross anatomy, physiology, and pathology.
Wenpeng’s strong knowledge of nutrition, diet, food safety (poisons) and food security developed through his background as a food quality assurance manager has made him qualified as a food quality assurance manager which has been recognised by the governments in Australia, China, the European Commission, Japan, Korea, Switzerland and the USA. He has worked in Asia, North America, Europe and Oceania.
