J K Wang

  • Assistant Professor, Electrical & Computer Engr.
  • 2015 Neil Ave
    Columbus, OH 43210



PhD in electrical engineering and computer science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013, with a minor in management; MS in electrical engineering and computer science, MIT, 2009; BE in electric engineering and automation, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China, 2007


Jiankang Wang joined the faculty at The Ohio State University in January 2014 with a joint appointment in ECE and Integrated Systems Engineering. Her research focuses on emerging technologies of modern power system operation and planning, electricity markets, reconfiguration, demand side management, distributed generation and renewable energy.

These technologies represent a highly promising trend of power system evolution.
