Biography

Robert Wang is an associate professor of mechanical engineering in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy at Arizona State University. He is also on the graduate faculty for materials science and engineering and chemical engineering at ASU. He joined the ASU faculty in 2011 as an assistant professor.

Prior to ASU, Wang was a postdoctoral fellow in materials sciences with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's Molecular Foundry from 2008 to 2011. He received his master's degree and doctorate in mechanical engineering from the University of California at Berkeley in 2005 and 2008, respectively. He completed his bachelor's in mechanical engineering at the University of California at Los Angeles in 2003. 

Wang's research interests include thermal energy conversion, storage, and transport in nanostructured materials; thermoelectric power generation; thermal storage media; heat transfer, and phonon optics, as well as the custom-design of colloidal nanoparticles and chemical precursors. He received a National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award in 2017.

Research Interests

http://wang.faculty.asu.edu/

My research group is an interdisciplinary nanoengineering team that focuses on manipulating material properties for thermal energy applications. Some of our focus areas are thermoelectric power generation, thermal storage media, heat transfer, and phonon optics. To achieve our objectives, we custom-design materials using colloidal nanoparticles, chemical precursors, and nanocomposites.
