Achievements

Prof Wang has been focusing on building fire safety for almost 10 years from his PhD, and the relevant research was extensively published in fire safety and combustion journals, including Fire Safety Journal and Proceedings of the Combustion Institute.
In Web of Science, Prof Wang’s publication number of “Glass in Fire” is ranking No. 1 during 2014-2019 from his research in glass façades of high-rise buildings. Recently, Prof Wang’s experimental campaigns in UK, USA and SA (South Africa) for fire resilience of informal settlement have attracted a lot of people to recognize this important global fire safety issue: the SA local media reported the experiment as “World's largest shack fire experiment”.
To date, Prof Wang has published around 40 journal papers and delivered his research in IAFSS, PCI and some other international conferences or universities. For more information or cooperations, please feel free to contact Prof Wang directly.
