Dr. Wang’s research is highly interdisciplinary and he has worked on environmental science and engineering, solar cells, and metabolomics applications in human diseases and marine animals. His latest research is focused on metabolomics data interpretation approaches development using artificial intelligence (AI) techniques and their applications in drug effect of food compounds discovery, animal response to combinational environmental pollutants, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and nutritional studies. He also works on instrumentation analysis using NMR and HPLC/MS in natural compounds discoveries for drug effects, natural dye studies for solar cells, and environmental pollutants photodegradation. Dr. Wang also serves on the editorial boards of journals such as Statistical Methods in Medical Research, and his research has been funded by NSF, NIH, DOD, and USDA.
