Dr. Wang’s research group is aimed at combining environmental fluid mechanics and informatics. The major topics include 1) AI-based earth observation, 2) the coastal resilience and interaction among hydrodynamics, infrastructure systems (e.g. coastal defense systems, transportation network),, 3) environmental impacts of renewable energy (offshore wind and hydrokinetic energy), and 4) micro/nano fluid dynamics for innovative design of environmental devices.
