Current Research

  • Prof. Wang's research focus is on the problems of quantum thermal transport in nanostructures and the development of nonequilibrium Green's function (NEGF) method for such problems. Most recently, he studies full counting statistics of heat transport in junctions. Other topics of current interests include molecular dynamics simulation with quantum baths, phonon Hall effect, quantum master equation approach to heat transport, Joule heating and electron-phonon interaction.
  • His earlier research has been in Monte Carlo method and cluster algorithms for efficient computer simulations in statistical physics.
