Dr Vincent Wang is currently a Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering at Victoria University. Hailing from National University of Singapore where he graduated with a PhD degree in 2008, Dr Wang worked at James Cook University as a Lecturer and then Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering before joining Victoria University in early 2015.

His research interests are in uncertainty quantification in structural engineering, and are particularly concerned with:

  • structural health monitoring allowing for stochastic effect
  • resilience of civil structures against hazards
  • safety assessment of in-service concrete structures.

Positions held:

  • 2015 – Present, Senior Lecturer, Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia
  • 2014 – 2015, Senior Lecturer, James Cook University, Townsville, Australia
  • 2010 – 2013, Lecturer, James Cook University, Townsville, Australia
  • 2009 – 2010, Research Fellow, National University of Singapore, Kent Ridge, Singapore.
