Dr. Cheng Wang received the Ph.D. in Optoelectronics-Physics from Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Rennes, France in 2015. During the Ph.D., he has researched with Télécom ParisTech, France, with Technische Universitat Berlin, Germany, and with Politecnico di Torino, Italy for two years. He was a Senior Research Assistant at the City University of Hong Kong from 2015 to 2016. He joined the School of Information Science and Technology at ShanghaiTech University as an assistant professor, PI in April, 2016. His main research interests are modeling and characterization of quantum structured semiconductor lasers including quantum dot lasers and quantum cascade lasers, nonlinear laser dynamics with control of optical injection and optical feedback, as well as the applications in optical communication systems.
