Biography:
Dr. Charles Wang received B.S. from Shanghai University of Science and Technology, China, in 1982 and Ph.D. from Wayne State University, Michigan, in 1991. He joined CIS at Temple University as an adjunct in the fall of 2014. Prior to joining Temple, Charles had spent over 20 years in corporate research and product development in various industries. He was director at multinational corporations, Harman International and Thomson, responsible for setting up and managing corporate R&D centers overseas. He is (co)-inventor of 30+ US granted patents and published more than 20 technical journal and conference papers. Charles believes his industrial R&D experience solving real-world problems helps him in academic teaching.
