Research Scientist

Shenhao Wang is a research scientist at MIT Urban Mobility Lab and Human Dynamics Group in Media Lab, and an AI assistant professor in urban planning at the University of Florida. He focuses on developing interpretable and ethical deep learning models to analyze individual decision-making. He also synergizes classical network theory and graph neural networks to examine economic development using urban mobility networks. Currently, he is designing socially-aware urban computing to incorporate unconventional data structures, seeking to generalize computational algorithms for urban studies. Shenhao Wang completed his interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Computer and Urban Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2020. He received B.A. in Economics from Peking University (2014) and B.A. in architecture and law from Tsinghua University (2011), Master of Science in Transportation, and Master of City Planning from MIT (2017).
