haowang_aaucHi, my name is Hao Wang, aka “Hao Won-derful”. I am an associate professor in Department of ICT and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering in Norwegian University of Science & Technology, Norway. I am teaching and leading the Big Data Lab. We are building up Data Analytics competence with our industrial/academic partners from different domains such as Maritime Operations, Smart Water Systems, Bioinformatics, and Finance.

Before this, I was a research scientist with IBM Canada Research and Development Centre, (still) collaborating with Profs Ridha Khedri,Mark LawfordTom Maibaum and Alan Wassyng in McMaster University, Canada. We are studying requirements, certification, and FPGA-based data analytics topics for Software (Intensive) Medical Devices.

I have extensive experiences in the development of safety-critical systems, distributed systems, real-time systems, fault-tolerance, and security. I am/was involved mainly with projects in the Maritime, Health Care, and Sustainability domains, including Big Data for Maritime, Smart Water Systems, and Cancer Research at NTNU, Software Certification of Medical Devices at McSCertSAFEHR at UNU-IIST and Building Decision-support through Dynamic Workflow Systems for Health Care at StFX. For more details, please see my CVGoogleScholar, ResearchGateDBLP, ORCIDCristin and LinkedIn. My profile page at NTNU is here.
