Crime-fighting scholar out to curb violence — Dr. Pei-ling Wang 

Since Pei-ling Wang joined NCNU in 2004, she has facilitated the launch of NCNU's Center for Domestic Violence and Child Abuse Research, then developed diagnostic tests for campus- or dating-related violence, such as the Taiwan Intimate Partner Violence Danger Assessment, for use by frontline social workers all across Taiwan.
