Professor Song Wang received a B.Sc. from Wuhan University of Hydraulic and Electric Engineering, China, in 1982 and a Ph.D. in Numerical Analysis from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, in 1989. He worked with a Dublin-based hi-tech company -Tritech Ltd., The University of New South Wales, Curtin University of Technology and The University of Western Australia, before returning to Curtin University in July 2014 as Professor and Head of Department of Mathematics & Statistics. His research interests include numerical solution of PDEs, numerical optimization and optimal control, optimum design and computational finance. He has published many research papers in these areas and his early work on numerical solution of semiconductor device equations of the drift-diffusion model has been featured in a review paper and a book chapter published respectively in a top journal Reports on Progress in Physics and a volume of the prestigious book series Handbook of Numerical Analysis. He is currently on the editorial boards of several international journals.
