Professor Frank Wang

Professor of Future Computing


Five years after my PhD degree, I was promoted to a full professorship at the Cambridge Cranfield High Performance Computing Facility in 2004. I became the Head of School of Computing at the University of Kent in 2010. So far, I have attracted research grants from the EC/UK  government/industries that total £5m. I served as a panel member for the UK government EPSRC "e-Science" and "Hardware for Efficient Computing" programmes. I am a Fellow of British Computer Society (BCS). I am currently the Chairman of the UK and Ireland Chapter, IEEE Computer Society.
