Global Perspectives: Hongliang Luo

Hongliang LuoHongliang Luo graduated from The Ohio State University with a PhD in food science and nutrition in 2005. Before becoming a Buckeye, Luo received her bachelor's and master's degree in microbiology from Fudan University.

She chose to study at Ohio State because she was interested in interdisciplinary research. She is a food lover, had heard of the food science and nutrition program advisor Hua Wang and was enthusiastic about the food science field. From her experience at Ohio State, Luo gained a sharing mindset, challenging spirit and fearless ability to express her opinions, even if it differed from her peers.

Currently, Luo is the senior nutrition manager at Danone in Shanghai and recently served as the president of The Ohio State University Shanghai Alumni Club.

Luo wants to help more people through her job, by providing healthy food and behavior consulting to the Chinese community and the world. She advises Ohio State students to remember to take care of their families and communities while building their career.

"If you go to Ohio State, please do not only study for knowledge, but also to discover the outside world. Open your heart and mind to know and help others, as well as receiving other's feedback. Work is only part of your life. We can focus more on our family and community."
