Professor Ting Wang is currently the Director of Energy Conversion and Conservation Center (ECCC) and Matthey Endowed Chair for Energy Research of University of New Orleans (UNO). He is also a Professor of Department of Mechanical Engineering. Prior to UNO, he taught 15 years at Clemson University in South Carolina, USA. He has been involved in energy conservation and power generation in full spectrum for the past 38 years. He is an experimentalist with significant computational fluid dynamics (CFD) experience. He specializes in gas turbine power generation, turbomachinery, coal/biomass gasification, poly-generation, integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC), Micro Combined Cooling, Heating , and Power (Micro-CCHP), energy efficiency, and general thermal-flow engineering. He has conducted both fundamental and applied research with funding from U.S. governmental agencies, such as Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), Office of Naval Research (ONR), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), USAID, National Science Foundation (NSF) and various industries, including General Electric, Siemens, 3M, Entergy, Dynergy, Power Engineering, Louisiana Steam Equipment, and Rain CII Carbon.
He has published over 320 research papers and reports and was the recipient of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) George Westinghouse Silver Medal for his contributions to power engineering in general. He was the Past Chair of two ASME committees (Coal, Biomass, and Alternative Fuels Committee and Gas Turbine Heat Transfer Committee). He has also served on the editorial board of three International Journals. He was appointed by former Louisiana Governor "Mike" Foster as a member of the Louisiana Comprehensive Energy Policy Advisory Commission. He is an ASME Fellow.
