Jinsheng Wang, Ph.D.

Research Scientist

Current research and/or projects


I started my career with the China National Chemical Construction Corporation (Beijing, China) as a chemical engineer. Later I worked in Japan’s National Institute of Materials and Chemical Research (Tsukuba, Japan) as a research scientist, and then in Iwatani International Corporation (Shiga, Japan) as a chemical engineer. I have been working in Canmet since 2000, first in Devon, AB and then in Ottawa.
