Concentrating solar thermal applications; solar thermal receiver design; optical modelling; radiative heat transfer; camera-based measurements.
Dr Wang’s research interests include engineering thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and concentrating solar thermal technology. Her current students’ projects include Flux variation on the tubes of a solar thermal receiver, Contingency analysis and risk management for system design, and Feasibility of integrated PV-CSP systems. Dr Wang also has available projects, including Camera-based measurements of reflection from non-diffused and complex-shaped 3D objects, and Surrogate modelling methods for Monte Carlo ray tracing (MCRT).
Dr Wang is a research fellow in the Solar Thermal Group at ANU. She completed her PhD within this group in 2019. Prior to this, she worked as a Teaching Fellow in Thermodynamics Engineering at Tianjin University in China. She completed her Masters degree at Beihang University in China, and her Bachelor at the Shanghai University of Electric Power in China.
Activities & Awards
Dr Wang won the ANU Solar Thesis Prize in 2019, which was awarded by the ACT Minister for Environment Shane Rattenbury at the 2019 Solar Oration. For more details on her activities, please see her publications.
