About me

Ping Wang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Stevens Institute of Technology and an affiliated member of The Stevens Institute for Artificial Intelligence (SIAI). She received her Ph.D. from Virginia Tech under the supervision of Dr. Chandan K. Reddy in 2021. Her research interests are in the broad area of data mining and machine learning with particular focus on healthcare analytics, including clinical question answering, information extraction, graph mining, and survival analysis. She has published papers in leading conferences (e.g., WWW, CIKM, and AAAI) and high impact journals (e.g., ACM Computing Surveys and IEEE TKDE). She received the NSF CRII award in 2023 to explore the reasoning augmented searching on NoSQL databases. She was Recognized as the “Research PhD Student of the Year” (one per year) in the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech in 2021.
