Dr Wei Wang is a lecturer and an ARC DECRA Fellow at School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of New South Wales (UNSW). He has been working in the fire safety engineering for over ten years, obtaining his PhDs (fire safety materials and engineering) from the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) and the University of Science & Technology of China (USTC) in 2019. In the same year, he joined the ARC Fire Training Centre, UNSW and continued researching bio-inspired flame retardants, fire-resistant polymer composites and fire safety of new energy battery materials. In addition to fundamental research, Dr Wang has also been actively engaging with associated local industries  on fire resistant polymer foams and with governmental institutions such as Fire Rescue NSW on the fire safety study of new energy vehicles.

In the field of fire safety materials, Dr Wang has published 76 peer reviewed articles (74/76 are Q1), 1 book chapter, 2 conference papers, and 2 authorised patents and has achieved an H-index of 34 with over 3000 citations. In 2021 and 2022, he was recognised by Stanford University as in the Top 2% of Highly Cited Scientists. In 2022, he received an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA 2023) for his project “Multifunctional Biomass Coatings for Electrostatic Induced Fire Hazards”.
