Feng Wang, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Engineering
School of Engineering and Computational Sciences

Dr. Feng Wang is an assistant professor in the School of Engineering and Computational Sciences at Liberty University. He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.  He received his B.E. degree from Zhejiang University in China, and M.S. degree from Yanshan University in China. His research interests are in the areas of:

  • Next Generation of the Internet,
  • Network performance measurement,
  • Big Data verification, and
  • Software designed Network and Devices

Dr. Wang is active in the Interdomain routing research community.  Dr. Wang's work on the reliability of Interdomain routing has uncovered the impact of transient routing failures on Internet end-to-end performance, which has become the focus of much recent research activity.  Dr. Wang has worked with Agilent and AT&T in designing and implementing reliable network systems.  Working with AT&T, Dr. Wang designed a real time system to detect and diagnose routing failures, which tremendously improved network performance. Dr. Wang also worked with Intel to understand and develop practical solutions for reliable global network routing. Dr. Wang is interested in designing reliable and secured routing and simulation tools for wireless mesh network and wireless sensor network.  
Dr. Wang’s research has been published in several leading journals and conferences in computer network including ACM Transactions on Networks, ACM SIGCOM, the IEEE Conference on Computer Communications, and IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols.
