Hai Wang

Professor of Mechanical Engineering













Hai Wang is Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University.  His interests are in renewable energy conversion, catalysis and combustion. His current research focuses on theories and applications of nanoparticles and nanostructures for rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors, combustion simulations and nanocatalysis.  He is the author and coauthor of numerous papers in scholarly journals, including “A detailed kinetic modeling study of aromatics formation in laminar premixed acetylene and ethylene flames” in Combustion and Flame, “Drag force, diffusion coefficient, and electric mobility of small particles. I. Theory applicable to the free-molecule regime” in Physical Review E, “A new mechanism for the formation of meteoritic kerogen-like material” in Science, “Gas-nanoparticle scattering: A molecular view of momentum accommodation function” in Physical Review Letters, and “Formation of nascent soot and other condensed-phase materials in flames” in Proceedings of the Combustion Institute.  He is currently the Editor-in-Chief of Progress in Energy and Combusition Science and was the co-editor of Combustion Generated Fine Carbonaceous Particles
