Ning Wang (Ph.D) works as Senior Research Fellow in Data Science at the Oxford-NIE financial Big Data Lab, Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford. He also works as Research Associate at the Oxford Internet Institute. His research is driven by a deep interest in analysing a wide range of social and economic problems by exploiting big data approaches, with the hope that this work could contribute to the intersection of social and economic behaviors and computational systems.
His current research interest lies in understanding how the information online influences people's decision making specifically in financial market. He is also interested in the broad area of behavioral finance, social computing, data mining, machine learning, social networks analysis, etc. He has been working on a range of projects including Forexmaster: mobile forex platform, "Big Vs" on Chinese microblog, Open Data and Civic Engagement, Big Data: Demonstrating the Value of the UK Web Domain Dataset, Leaders and Followers in Online Activism, Using Twitter to Map and Measure Online Cultural Diffusion, etc. His research has appeared in PLOS one, Social Networks, Data Science, Entropy, etc.
Prior to Oxford, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge. He worked on the Social-based Forwarding Algorithm. He was involved in research to analyse a large number of real-world data on social networks in an effort to use centrality and community structure to optimise online communications.
He is also guest editor of a forthcoming Policy and Internet journal special issue of Chinese Web Data, program chair of the 14th IEEE Conference on Computer and Information Technology (CIT2014), Co-Chair of the 2014 IEEE Conference on Cyber, Physical and Social Computing (CPSCom2014), and TCP members of 2013 AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM13) and reviewer for IEEE Communications Magazine.
