Professor Wang obtained his BA degree (1980) from Wuhan University and his ScM (1986) and PhD (1990) degrees from University of Rochester. He was awarded Minnesota Supercomputer Institute Fellow (1991) for post-doctoral studies at the University of Minnesota. He joined the Physics Department of HKUST in 1992.

Professor Wang is interested in revealing the physics principles behind the novel physics phenomena in condensed matter physics. Currently, he is working on the interplay of charges, spins, and phonons in interesting materials and devices. One particular question is how the interactions of charge, spin, and phonons affect the spin dynamics and electron transport. The current research topics include magnetic domain wall motion under electric and magnetic fields, thermal gradient, and spin current of electrons and magnons; domain wall pinning theory; theories for large magnetoresistance in nonmagnetic systems; and electronic properties of novel systems.
Research Areas
