About / News / Research / Members / Contact
Wireless Networking and Sensin g Lab ( Wang Lab) in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences at Temple University focuses on research that advances the way that people, devices and applications interact in emerging wireless networking, smart sensing, mobile computing, and artificial intelligence. Wang Lab was established in the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNC Charlotte) in 2004. Previously, it was part of the Networking Research Lab and then became the Wireless Networking and Sensing (WiNS) Lab at UNC Charlotte. In 2019, the lab was moved to Temple University and renamed as Wang Lab. Its research has been continuously funded by National Science Foundation, Department of Transportation, Microsoft, and Oak Ridge Associated Universities.
Our research is broadly related to networking, sensing and computing.
