Personal profile



Dr. Wang is currently a senior lecturer in the School of Computing, Electronics, and Math at Coventry University, UK. He worked in Centre for Security, Communications and Network Research, Univeristy of Plymouth for 5 years as a lecturer before joining the department here. Dr. Wang’s current research interests include designing, modeling and implementing novel algorithms and mechanisms for computer networks, network security, cloud, and fog computing. He is interested in applying his expertise to support the transition to Industrial 4.0.  He has held a number of grants and published over 50 publications in these areas. He is currently co-supervising a number of Ph.D. students on various topics in these areas and was involved in many industrial related projects. Dr. Wang has actively served the academic community and he co-founded the International Workshop on Performance Modeling and Evaluation in Computer and Telecommunication Networks. He has also acted as a co-chair for a number of international conferences and served on program committees for over 10 international conferences/workshops. He has edited a number of journal issues as a guest editor and been a referee for many international journals. Dr. Wang also holds the Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MCSE) professional qualification, is a Cisco Certified Network Associate training instructor and is a member of IEEE and IET.


Research Interests

Time sensitive networking, Grid, Cloud, Fog computing, Clustering, P2P and Web Service; Security and QoS in Computer Networks; MAC protocols and Integration of Computer Networks; Performance Modelling/Evaluation of Computer Networks; Mesh networks, Sensor networks, IEEE 802.11, IEEE 802.15 and IEEE 802.16

Vision Statement

Recent advances in mobile and wireless networking has been tremendous in the past decade. The applied research is evolving in deploying campus wide wireless network, designing static and mobile networks with Cloud connection and setting wireless sensor network in diverse environment. Among this major research direction, challenges still remain for design, deploy and evaluate novel protocol, system architecture and topology design. An Internet of everything is envisioned to be the future of networking. I am committed to develop novel protocols, network models to fulfil this vision by means of simulation, real testbed development and performance modelling.
