Xuguang Wang est directeur de recherche à l'Université Gustave Eiffel (Anciennement IFSTTAR - Institut français des sciences et technologies des transports, de l'aménagement et des réseaux IFSTTAR, et INRETS - Institut national de Recherche sur les transports et leur sécurité). Il a obtenu son doctorat en mécanique des solides de l'Ecole Centrale de Lyon en 1991 et son HDR (Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches ) de l'Université Claude Bernard - Lyon 1 en 2008 . Il a rejoint l'INRETS en 1991. Ses problématiques de recherche concernent l’analyse du mouvement humain, confort d’assise, monitoring postural, modélisation numérique du corps humain. 

Xuguang Wang is a research director at Université Gustave Eiffel (formerly French Institute of Science and Technology for Transport, Development and Networks, IFSTTAR). He obtained his PhD in solid mechanics from Ecole Centrale de Lyon in 1991 and his HDR (Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches) from University Claude Bernard – Lyon 1 in 2008. He joined INRETS in 1991 and has been working on digital human modeling for ergonomic simulation since then. He was one of main investigators of the European research project REALMAN from 2001 to 2004. He was the scientific coordinator of an EU funded project DHErgo (Digital Humans for Ergonomic design of products, 2008-2011), aiming to develop dynamic and musculoskeletal human models for ergonomic design of products. More recently he was a workpackage leader for the European project PIPER (Position and Personalize Advanced Human Body Models for Injury Prediction, 2013-2017). In addition, he has been involved in many national and industrial research projects especially with car manufacturers (Renault, Peugeot Citroën Automobile, Renault Trucks, Toyota Europe, etc) and seat suppliers (SAFRAN group). He organized the first IEA (International Ergonomics Association) Digital Human Modeling Conference in Lyon in 2011. He is associate editor of International Journal of Human Factors Modelling and Simulation since 2016. His current research concerns seating comfort, postural monitoring, automotive ergonomics, digital human modeling.
