Dr Charles Wang is interested in general relativity, quantum gravity, modified gravity, astrophysics and cosmology and pioneered methods of probing quantum gravity phenomenology using atom interferometry. He is also interested in experimental tests of classical and quantum gravity in the lab and in space. In applied and engineering mathematics, he is interested in differential geometry, Clifford algebra, Cosserat theory of rods and nonlinear dynamics. He has been collaborating with industries in microelectronics, defence and oil & gas and is developing applications of precision gravity sensing using quantum techniques.
