Creating a New Kind of Doctor
We recruit and train physician leaders as comfortable taking on systemic challenges in health as caring for individual patients.
Discovery to Impact — Faster
We reward creative thinking and encourage rapid experimentation, using collaborative programs to speed promising research to market.
Improving Care. Improving Health.
We’re here to make health — including health care — better. The end goal is a complete revolution in how people get and stay healthy.

Jun Wang, Ph.D., is an associate professor in the Department of Neurology at Dell Medical School. He is also an associate professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders in the Moody College of Communication at The University of Texas at Austin.

Wang earned his doctorate in computer science with a cross-training in communication sciences and disorders from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln in 2011. He then received postdoctoral training at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and the University of Nebraska Medical Center on neuroimaging (magnetoencephalography) before moving to the Callier Center for Communication Disorders at The University of Texas at Dallas as a research scientist in 2012. In 2014, he became an assistant professor of biomedical engineering and communication sciences and disorders at UT Dallas, where he held an adjunct appointment with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. During his time at UT Dallas, he was also affiliated with the UT Southwestern Medical Center, where he maintained an extra lab for data collection from patients. He was a software engineer at IBM China Software Development Lab in Beijing before pursuing his doctoral degree.

Wang’s research is interdisciplinary with a focus on assistive technologies including silent speech interface to assist the communication of laryngectomees, motor speech disorder due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and neural speech decoding for brain-computer interfaces. Advanced computational techniques including machine learning are heavily used in these projects. His research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, the University of Texas System and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation.
