Dr. Liqiang (Eric) Wang Appointed as the Castagne Faculty Fellow
November 14, 2013 — Associate Professor Liqiang “Eric” Wang from the Department of Computer Science has been appointed as the Castagne Faculty Fellow. This newly developed fellowship provides the college with the opportunity to invest in Dr. Wang's area of expertise - design and analysis of data-intensive, high-performance computing systems. Moreover, this recognizes research contributions that he has already achieved in this area.
After receiving his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stony Brook University, Dr. Wang came to the University of Wyoming in 2006 serving as an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science. He continued working in this position until 2012, when he became an associate professor in the same department. In 2011, he received a NSF Career Award. Wang took a sabbatical leave in the years 2012-2013, to work with a visiting research scientist in IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in New York.
Dr. Liqiang “Eric” Wang’s research focuses on the design and analysis of parallel systems for big-data computing. He is currently working on optimizing performance, scalability, resilience, and load balancing of data-intensive computing especially on Cloud, GPU, and multicore platforms. Dr. Wang is also focusing on the analysis of using program analysis to detect programming errors and performance defects in large-scale parallel computing systems.
The Castagne Faculty Fellowship is funded by the A.J. Castagne Endowment.
