Wang, of Livingston, serves as associate director of the Center for Solar Research at NJIT and Big Bear Solar Observatory, Big Bear, CA. His research interests include: solar physics and phenomena of the atmosphere of the sun and solar-like stars; measurements of physical parameters of the solar atmosphere, such as magnetic fields, density, temperature, and energy distribution of electrons and ions in the photosphere. Other interest are chromosphere and corona; radio emissions from the sun and stars, radio emission mechanisms, radio instrumentation and techniques.

Wang also researches microwave spectral imaging of the sun and stars, high-energy solar physics (including hard and soft X-ray), extreme-ultraviolet and gamma-ray observations. 

Wang received his doctorate in astronomy from the California Institute of Technology and his bachelor’s degree in astronomy from Nanjing University
