Anzhong Wang is a theoretical physicist, specialized in gravitation, cosmology and astroparticle physics. He is on the Physics faculty of Baylor University.[1] Currently he is working on cosmology in string/M theory and the Hořava-Lifshitz gravity.

Apart from his research contributions, Professor Wang is known for his ability to convey the excitement and significance of discoveries in gravitation and cosmology while teaching various foundational courses in Physics.

Wang is married to Yumei Wu, a mathematical physicist also at Baylor and they live in Waco, Texas, USA.

Research[edit]

Wang's research recently has principally focused on aspects of gravitation, cosmology and astrophysics, using tools from general relativity, superstring theory and M-Theory. His recent work includes investigations of late cosmic acceleration of the universe, cosmology in string/M Theory, thermodynamics of black holes and their formation from gravitational collapse, the Horava-Lifshitz quantum gravity and its applications to cosmology and astrophysics.

Publications[edit]

Wang has written over 100 research articles in scholarly journals on topics in gravitational theory, cosmology, string theory and high-energy astrophysics.
