WANG Yunpeng
Research Associate

Dr. Wang received his Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering at Hebei University of Technology in 2012. Between 2012 and 2015, he worked as a Research Engineer at XCMG Research Center. In 2015, he started his Ph.D study in Mechanical and Materials Engineering at the University of Western Ontario and received his Ph.D degree in 2020. Since April 2020, Dr. Wang has been working in the Department of Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering at Southern University of Science and Technology as a research associate.
