Dr. Wang’s research group is aimed at developing numerical models to connect big data and decision-making in coastal systems. The major topics include 1) the coastal resilience and interaction among hydrodynamics, infrastructure systems (e.g. coastal defense systems, transportation network), and decision makers facing sea-level rise and extreme weather events, 2) renewable energy (offshore wind and solar energy), and 3) big data with citizen science and climate change risk communication.
