Mengen Wang received her BS from Shandong University in China and PhD from Stony Brook University. She then spent three years as a postdoc in the Materials Department at the University of California - Santa Barbara. Wang’s research is focused on developing and applying first-principles quantum mechanical computational approaches to facilitate the rational design of materials for next-generation energy conversion and quantum information applications.
