  Research Interests:

Dr. Wang’s primary research area relates to the evaluation of intervention programs (e.g., social-emotional and academic intervention) through experimental designs. She also examines implementation strategies to improve intervention/treatment fidelity. Additionally, Dr. Wang is interested in research that centers on under-represented populations, such as international students in graduate programs in the U.S. and Asian-American teachers in public schools following the pandemic.
