Dr. Wang’s research group is aimed at developing numerical models to connect big data and decision-making in coastal engineering systems. He and his students endeavor to create innovative methods to address two major challenges in this task. 1) Data-Model Interface: how to enrich the big data source and develop a transforming interface to improve model reliability and accuracy; and 2) Model-based Decision Making: how to inform decision making taking the advantage of the fast speed and high resolution of the model with large scale supercomputing. His lab has a wide spectrum of research topics, including coastal resilience, urban floods, renewable energy, aquaculture, and sediment transport.
