Dr. Wang holds degrees in Mechanical and Automotive Engineering, and a degree in Power Machinery and Engineering and is an associate in Exponent's Vehicle Engineering Practice. His education and professional background cover a wide range of mechanical engineering and automotive engineering topics including structure design, internal combustion engine (ICE) combustion and heat transfer, ICE gaseous and particle emissions, engine lubrication and cooling system, engine aftertreatment systems, and vehicle Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH). 

Dr. Wang is proficient conducting Finite Element Analysis (FEA) on engine components such as the engine block, liner, and piston-ring systems using Solidworks/Creo, Abaqus, and Hypermesh platforms. He specializes in multiphase, multidimensional modeling and computational analysis of engine lubrication, cooling, and aftertreament systems by using tools that include Ansys, Fluent, AVL-Fire and MATLAB. Dr. Wang has extensive experience in analyzing engine lubricating oil degradation, and vehicle particle formation and emissions. Furthermore, he has years of experience working on aftertreatment system failure analysis using X-ray CT and Microscopes (TEM/SEM), specifically for both mid- and heavy-duty diesel and gasoline engine trucks, plus agricultural and construction machines. Dr. Wang has also conducted both experimental and modeling research on wet liner cavitation and corrosion failure for heavy-duty diesel engines in the past, which involves Fluid Dynamics, Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) and Vibration Modal Analysis.  

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Wang worked at Sloan Automotive Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a Postdoctoral Associate and then a Research Scientist. At MIT, Dr. Wang has been leading a research team that worked on heavy-duty engine durability failure analysis due to high oil consumption, poor cooling system design, and pre-mature aftertreatment system application. He also worked on hydrogen combustion engine (H2ICE) development that tackled problems with instable combustion, super knock, water-oil interaction and high NOx emission issues.
