About

I am not currently open to opportunities, and am focusing on my main work. Thanks for your interest in FWPhys.

In 2014, You-Rong “Frank” Wang came to New Zealand with his family from Shandong, China, and entered The University of Auckland in 2016. While he had been adamant that he wished to pursue a career in science, discovering his academic passions wasn’t straightforward.

After taking exploratory courses in fields such as microbiology, inorganic chemistry, pure mathematics and probability theory, and going on 360 International exchange between 2017 and 2018 to UC Berkeley, he’s since been deeply fascinated by and devoted to the intersectional fields of nonlinear dynamics and theoretical physics, for their mathematical rigour and universality of applications.

He has received a B.Sc. in math and physics in 2019 as a Faculty of Science Senior Scholar, and B.Sc. with 1st-class Honours in physics in May 2020. Currently, he is working towards a Ph.D. in cosmology supervised by Prof. Richard Easther, while, on the side, participating the maintenance and development of the department’s teaching laboratory.

I happen to have a bio handy for a student-academic event in August 2020.

Peace.
