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. He was a visiting Research Scientist in IBM T.J. Watson Research Center during 2012-2013.
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, and an Overseas Scholars Collaborative Research Award (a.k.a. Outstanding Chinese Overseas Young Scholar Award) by Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) in 2014.
