Current Research

Dr. Wang’s current research includes advanced vehicular technology assessment on fuel economy and human machine arbitration in Automated Driving System. She is also interested in Traffic Simulation, Data Analysis, Intelligent Vehicles, and Road Safety Evaluation. Dr. Wang’s primary research collaborator at PATH is Research Engineer, Ching-Yao Chan.


Dr. Wang is a postdoctoral researcher at California PATH, UC Berkeley. She earned her Ph.D. degree in Transportation Engineering from Tongji University, China, in 2016, and Bachelor’s degree in Transportation Engineering from Shandong University of Science and Technology, China, in 2010. Her doctoral research focused on Cooperative Collision Warning System and related topics including wireless communication, collision prediction algorithm and crash data analysis. She also did big data analysis on vehicle driving patterns with MapReduce when she was an intern at BMW Group, China, in 2016.
