Professor Wang obtained his BSc (1985) and PhD (1990) degrees in materials physics from the University of Science and Technology, Beijing. In 1989, he received an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellowship and worked in the Institute for Metal Physics, Goettingen University and the Fritz-Haber-Institute of the Max-Planck Society, Berlin, Germany. In 1993, he joined the Physics Department of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. During 1997-2000 he worked in the Department of Applied Physics and Materials Science, the City University of Hong Kong. Professor Wang has authored/co-authored 250 peer-reviewed research papers in reputed international journals. He received Chien-Shiung Wu Physics Award (1990), State Natural Science Award (2005), Achievement in Asia Award (2006), and School of Science Service Awards (2015).
