Dr. Xiaorong Wang earned his Ph.D. in the Chemical Engineering and Material Science in 1994 from Syracuse University and worked as a Research Associate at Princeton University. He joined Bridgestone/Firstone Research in 1995. He once was a Senior Scientist of KMB (key management band) level in the company, and served as the Project & Group Leaders for a number of research groups. Dr. Wang has over 100 invention disclosures, among them 97 inventions have been granted as patents. He also authored or coauthored over 40 peer-reviewed paper publications. Many of his inventions are now in commercial use. For that, he has been the recipient of a number of awards, among which were the Bridgestone/Firestone CEO Award (2000) for a distinguished research staff, and the Bridgestone/Firestone President Awards (2002, 2005, 2007, 2010) for outstanding achievements. Dr. Wang in 2013 joined Tongji University as a Distinguished Professor. His research interests include: anionic polymerization, molecular rheology, complex fluids, reinforcement, jamming, micro-phase engineering, damping, rolling resistance and traction.
