Junmin Wang Elected ASME Fellow

The Board of Governors of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) has elected Associate Professor Junmin Wang to ASME Fellow status.  He is one of a select number of more than 3,000 members who have attained the grade of Fellow.

Wang is the founding director of the Vehicle Systems and Control Laboratory at The Ohio State University.  Research interests include control, modeling, estimation and diagnosis of dynamical systems, specifically for conventional and electrified ground vehicles, sustainable mobility and mechatronic systems. Prior to joining Ohio State in September 2008, Wang worked at Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas for five years.  His research has been funded by federal agencies and industrial companies worldwide.

Wang has more than 230 peer-reviewed publications, including over 110 journal articles and 11 United States patents.  He is an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Distinguished Lecturer, an SAE Fellow, a recipient of the Ohio State University Harrison Faculty Award for Excellence; the National Science Foundation CAREER Award; the SAE International Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award; the SAE International Vincent Bendix Automotive Electronics Engineering Award, and the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award.

Wang serves as an associate editor, technical editor, or editor for the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Transactions Journal of Dynamic Systems, Measurement and Control; IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology; IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics; IFAC Control Engineering Practice; IFAC Mechatronics, and SAE International Journal of Engines. He is chair of the ASME Automotive and Transportation Systems Technical Committee and past chair of the SAE Control and Calibration Committee.

Wang received a BE degree in Automotive Engineering and his first MS degree in Power Machinery and Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 1997 and 2000, respectively.  He received his second and third ME degrees in Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities in 2003, and a PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Texas at Austin in 2007. 

His ASME citation notes: “Wang has made significant contributions to the mechanical engineering community through high scholarship, education, and professional service.  Among his seminal research contributions are the development of control and estimation methods for ground vehicle systems that advance efficiency, cleanliness, and driving safety of conventional and electrified vehicles.”
