Assistant Professor

School of Meteorology & Department of Geography and Environmental Sustainability, University of Oklahoma

Dr. Chenghao Wang and his lab examine the mechanisms of urban environments, their interactions with regional and global climates, and their impacts on building energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, and public health using novel modeling tools combined with observational data, remote sensing techniques, and climate model outputs. Through his interdisciplinary research, Dr. Wang aims to advance our fundamental understanding of the urban environment and its interactions with our society and the broader scale climate system in the past, present, and future, and to foster sustainable and resilient urban development.

Dr. Wang obtained his B.Eng. degree in Hydrology and Water Resources Engineering from the College of Hydraulic & Environmental Engineering at China Three Gorges University in 2015, and M.S.E. and Ph.D. in Civil, Environmental and Sustainable Engineering from the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment at Arizona State University in 2018 and 2019, respectively. He was a visiting student at the Ohio State University in 2013, as sponsored by the Hubei Higher Education Outstanding Student Overseas Study Program. Dr. Wang was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Earth System Science at Stanford University from 2020 to 2022, during which he was also a New Map of Life fellow (2019 cohort) at the Stanford Center on Longevity, with a focus on the environment and climate.

Dr. Wang joined the University of Oklahoma in 2022 as an assistant professor in the School of Meteorology and the Department of Geography and Environmental Sustainability.

Dr. Wang is an active member of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the American Meteorological Society (AMS), and the International Association for Urban Climate (IAUC). He currently chairs the IAUC Bibliography Committee.
