Text mining and systems, data modeling, algorithms, cyber security
Prof. Wang's current research interests include text mining algorithms and systems, data modeling and its applications, and combinatorial optimizations. My previous interests included large-scale network dynamics, cloud computing and search over encryption, network security, wireless networks, and computational complexity theory. He is particularly interested in algorithmic problems and mathematical modeling arising from practical applications, including data analysis and applications, intelligent text automation, wireless sensor networks, computational medicine, networking, and online social networks. I studied computational complexity theory from late 1980's to early 2000's, including structural complexity, average-case complexity, and average NP-completeness.
Prof. Wang joined the Department of Computer Science at UMass Lowell in 2001 as Full Professor and served as Department Chair from 2007 to 2016. Prior to that he was Assistant Professor and then Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina. He has also served as Director of the greater China partnership for the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications since 2011.
