Dr. Roger Wang

Rutgers University (Academia)

Roger Wang, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Rutgers University. Prior to joining Rutgers University, he worked as a Lecturer at the University of Dundee, UK. He received his Ph.D. degree in Environmental Fluid Mechanics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2014, his M.S. degree from Singapore Stanford Partnership, and his B.S. degree from Beihang University. He has conducted Postdoctoral research at MIT and University of California Berkeley during 2014 to 2017. Dr. Wang’s research group is aimed at developing numerical models to connect big data and decision-making in civil and environmental 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 and urban floods.
