The research interests of Weichao Wang are in designing protocols and mechanisms to secure pervasive systems, wireless networks, cloud computing environments, and critical infrastructures. The investigation focuses on integrating multi-disciplinary schemes with network techniques to prevent and detect various attacks and to enforce security and privacy in such environments. He is also very interested in security education for both students and working professionals. His research is supported by NSF, the Department of Labor, NIST, Duke Energy, NC Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI), and UNC Charlotte.
