Dr Wang is among the group of pioneering researchers who have made solid contributions in the areas of nano-mechanics of advanced materials and biomechanics of cytoskeleton in cells.

He is an expert in using multiscale modelling techniques to reveal distinct mechanical/ electromechanical responses of nanoscale crystal materials and protein polymers. The research aims to uncover the physics emerging at the nanoscale, establish the theoretical framework of nano-/cell mechanics and offer theoretical guidance to the design of nano/biomimetic materials, nano/bio-sensors and nanogenerators.

Currently, Dr Wang is extending his research to biomedical engineering where a novel electromechanics cell model will be developed in an attempt to transform cells into biosensors for disease diagnosis and gain deep insights into cell mechano-transduction. The research outcomes so far have led to 75 journal papers and more than 10 conference contributions, which have made significant impacts in the area internationally.
