Liping Wang, Ph.D.

Liping Wang

Dr. Liping Wang is an Associate Professor in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and the Director of Nano-Engineered Thermal Radiation Lab at Arizona State University. He received his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering with a focus on nanoscale radiative heat transfer in 2011 at Georgia Institute of Technology under the guidance of Professor Zhuomin Zhang. He started his academic career as an assistant professor at Arizona State University in 2012 and was promoted to associate professor with tenure in 2018. Dr. Wang’s research focuses on selective control of thermal radiation for energy applications by understanding and exploring fundamental physical mechanisms and seeking the experimental demonstration of proof-of-concept efficient thermophotonic devices. Besides, he has been investigating near-field thermal radiation for energy conversion and thermal management applications, in addition to the development of novel optical and thermal metrologies for characterization of materials radiative properties and device testing. His research findings have been published in more than 80 peer-reviewed high-impact journal papers in applied physics, optics, heat transfer, and materials. Dr. Wang is currently serving as the Chair of ASME HTD K-9 Nanoscale Thermal Transport Committee and an active member of ASME-AIChE Joint Committee on Thermophysical Properties. He is the recipient of 2017 AFOSR Young Investigator Award, 2016 JQSRT/Elsevier Viskanta Young Scientist Award, and 2015 NSF CAREER Award, in addition to 2013 Top 5% ASU Engineering Faculty Teaching Award.
