Yuxin Wang

Research Assistant Professor and Lecturer

Environmental Studies Program

Background

Yuxin Wang’s research focuses on the risk assessment of contaminants arising from society and technological development. Her primary research interests are in water quality challenges arising from human activities, developing laboratory experiments and mechanistic models, and exposure risk assessment for contaminants in natural and engineered systems (drinking water and wastewater treatment systems).

Before joining Binghamton University, Wang was a postdoctoral associate in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University, and a visiting instructor in Sustainable Engineering at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. Wang has also applied her knowledge as an expert witness for water discharge litigation. Since receiving her PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, she has researched chemical contamination and engineered new remediation strategies for wastewater in both academic and private sector settings.
