Liqiang (Eric) Wang is a Castagne Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Wyoming. He has been an assistant professor (2006-2012) and an associate professor (2012-present) in the same department. He received Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stony Brook University in 2006.
His research interest is the design and analysis of parallel systems for big-data computing, which includes two aspects: design and analysis. For design, he is currently working on optimizing performance, scalability, resilience, and load balancing of data-intensive computing, especially on Cloud, GPU, and multicore platforms. For the aspect of analysis, he focuses on using program analysis to detect programming errors and performance defects in large-scale parallel computing systems. He received an NSF CAREER Award in 2011.
In this academic year 2012-2013, he is taking sabbatical leave and working as a Visiting Research Scientist in IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights/Hawthorne, NY.
