Biography

Jin Wang received a B.S. degree from Xi’an Jiaotong University, in 1998, an M.S. degree from Wuhan University, in 2001, and a Ph.D. from Michigan State University, East Lansing, in 2005, all in electrical engineering. 

From Sept., 2005 to Aug. 2007, he worked at the Ford Motor Company as a Core Power Electronics Engineer and contributed to the traction drive design of the Ford Fusion Hybrid.  He joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The Ohio State University as an assistant professor in September 2007 and was promoted to associate professor in 2013 and full professor in 2017.  His research interests include wide bandgap power devices and their applications, high-voltage and high-power converter/inverters, integration of renewable energy sources, and electrification of transportation. 

Dr. Wang received multiple teaching and research awards including the IEEE Power Electronics Society Richard M. Bass Young Engineer Award and the National Science Foundation’s CAREER Award, both in 2011; Ralph L. Boyer Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Innovation in 2012, the Lumley Research Award in 2013, and the Harrison Faculty Award for Excellence in Engineering Education in 2017, all from the College of Engineering at The Ohio State University.   Dr. Wang has over 140 peer-reviewed journal and conference publications and six patents.  Dr. Wang had been an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications from 2008 to 2014.  He initiated and served as the General Chair for the 1st IEEE Workshop on Wide Bandgap Power Devices and Applications in 2013.  Currently, Dr. Wang serves as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics and IEEE Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Power Electronics (J-ESTPE).
