ABOUT ME

My name is Yanbing Wang (王砚冰 | pronounced: WONG YEN-bing), meaning the inkstone and ice literally. I like to interpret it as having an inquisitive mind and a pristine heart (shout out to my parents for this poetic touch). I was born and raised in the east coast of China. Since coming to the United States in 2014, I almost instantly became a coffee person, but recently transformed to a tea person. I deem it as a big life improvement. Now I have bottomless tea while pursuing my PhD in transporataion cyber physical systems at Vanderbilt University. I'm passionate about the mathematical framework in transportation systems (modeling, estimation and control). I also love to explore how automonous vehicles can shape the traffic stream. In my free time I like to invent exotic chords on piano. Feel free to reach out to me for any research & hobby related discussions!
