The research interests of Weichao Wang are in designing protocols and mechanisms to secure pervasive systems, wireless networks, cloud computing environments, and critical infrastructures. The investigation focuses on integrating multi-disciplinary schemes with network techniques to prevent and detect various attacks and to enforce security and privacy in such environments. He is also very interested in security education for both students and working professionals. His research is supported by NSF, Duke Energy, and UNC Charlotte.

Weichao received his Ph.D degree in Computer Science from Purdue University in 2005. He also holds Master's Degrees in Computer Science from Purdue University (2002) and Tsinghua University (2000), and the Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from Tsinghua University (1998).
