Wang Wei is Distinguished Associate Research Fellow of the College of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Sichuan University, and a specially-appointed expert from the Recruitment Program of Global Experts of Sichuan Province. He received his doctor's degree in electrical engineering from University of Cambridge in UK in 2014. He is a PhD of the University of Cambridge getting a full scholarship from China Scholarship Council and Cambridge Overseas Trust (29 people got the scholarship in China in 2010), a candidate for Young Researcher of Homerton College, Cambridge (top 6 in University of Cambridge), and a candidate for Award for Distinguished Doctorates of IET (top 6 in UK). He has been engaged in the application of superconducting technology for nearly ten years, published more than 30 SCI papers in internationally famous journals including APL, JAP, SUST, and IEEE Trans, and has authorized 3 patents in China. He is Member of IEEE, IOP and IET, and serves as a reviewer for several internationally renowned SCI journals. The Defense Committee of University of Cambridge praised his PhD thesis for “opening up a new research direction for electrical engineering and physics.”
He presided over a project of the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and was responsible for the construction of the “energy conversion and applied superconductivity” sub-laboratory of Superconductivity and New Energy Center, “a platform for entrepreneurship & innovation education and practice” of the national entrepreneurship & innovation demonstration base in Sichuan University. He specializes in fields as follows: (1) superconducting magnet (small NMR magnet); (2) superconducting motor (electromotor and wind driven generator); (3) flux pump technique (superconducting wireless charging); (4) superconducting bearing (magnetic levitation technique); (5) flywheel energy storage (energy conversion and power electronics).
