Yue Wang received her B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from North China Electric Power University, China, in 2015 and M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Tianjin University, China, in 2018. She is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, under the supervision of Dr. Ali Emadi and Dr. Zahra K. Motamed (co-supervisor). Yue’s main research interests include modeling and control of hybrid-specific internal combustion engines, electrified powertrains and waste heat recovery systems.
Yue started her passion for engineering since undergraduate study, where she learned the fundamentals of mechanical and electrical systems at North China Electric Power University, China. The passion inspired her to concentrate on the pursuit of knowledge to this day. During her undergrad, she was awarded the Outstanding Student Prize for her academic achievement, and in 2015, she was referred for admission to graduate study in Tianjin University.
From 2015 to 2018, Yue studied as a master student at State Key Laboratory of Engines (SKLE), Tianjin University, China. She joined Dr. Gequn Shu’s research group on waste heat recovery systems of internal combustion engines, where her research was focused on compact exhaust heat exchanger designs. During her master’s, she was also involved in several projects including U.S. – China Joint Research on Medium and Heavy-Duty Trucks (CERC-TRUCK) and projects for National Basic Research Program of China (973 Program). Throughout these experiences, Yue has grown professionally and personally.
In September 2018, Yue started Ph.D. program at McMaster University, under the supervision of Dr. Ali Emadi and Dr. Zahra K. Motamed (co-supervisor). She joined McMaster Automotive Resource Center (MARC) and started research on hybrid-specific engine modeling and control. Now as a member of Dr. Emadi’s research team, Yue greatly appreciates the opportunity and enjoys her roles studying and working here.
