She holds a PhD in International and Multicultural Education from Florida State University, a M.Ed. in Environmental Education from Florida Atlantic University, and a B.A. in English Translation from Zhengzhou University.

Dr. Wang's research agenda focuses on international and comparative education, social foundations of education, and how the broad social, cultural and economic aspects of the society contribute to education inequality and shape students’ experiences of education. She has done research on education and intergenerational social mobility in rural China, teacher policy and practice in rural and urban China, EdTech and education inequality, and disparity in mental health resources among rural and urban youths. Her research has been funded by American Association of University Women, Philanthropic Educational Organization, China Cultural Times Foundation, among other sources.

At SMU, Dr. Wang works primarily with Dr. Alexandra Pavlakis on an NSF-funded project that utilizes micro-internships to leverage scalable learning for STEM workforce development among people experiencing homelessness. This is a three-institution collaborative project with University of Nebraska Omaha and Vienna University.
