Gerald Wang

Civil and Environmental Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University
Ph.D., Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019
Summary:

Dr. Wang's research interests involve using mechanics, statistical physics, and high-performance computing to understand nanoscale structural and transport phenomena, with the goal of developing very small solutions for very big problems in the water-energy nexus.

The M5 Lab's research is centered around the use of theory and high-performance computation to address problems in micro- and nanoscale mechanics; their core motivation is to inform and inspire the design of materials and devices for CEE applications, including higher efficiency molecular-scale separation processes, more resilient structural materials, more recyclable polymers, and tunable thermal interfaces. Their tools of choice include statistical physics, molecular mechanics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer, and a wide range of computational methods for modeling small-scale phenomena, including (in almost all cases) particle simulations and (in appropriate cases) techniques from machine learning. They are also interested in developing efficient simulation methods for simulating micro- and nanoscale phenomena.
