Personal Brief Introdunction

Prof. Wang obtained his Ph. D. from University of Science & Technology of China (USTC) in 2014. Then He worked at the Clean Combustion Research Center, King Abdullah University of Science & Technology, as a Postdoctoral Researcher and Research Scientist from 2014-2018. He joined in USTC as a professor since the September of 2018.

Prof. Wang’s research interests include combustion diagnostics using advanced mass spectrometry, low- and high-temperature fuel chemistry, flame structure, and autoxidation mechanism of volatile organic compounds in the atmosphere. He has co-authored more than 70 publications in peer-reviewed international journals, including Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci.、Prog. Energ. Combust. Sci.、Combust. Flame、Proc. Combust. Inst.、J. Am. Chem. Soc. etc. He received the Research Excellence Award from the Combustion Institute in 2020, and the Bernard Lewis Fellowship at the 35th International Symposium on Combustion in 2014, San Francisco, USA, and served as a Session Chair at the 36th International Symposium on Combustion, Seoul, South Korea.
