Qingfang Wang is an associate professor of public policy at the University of California, Riverside. Her research area lies broadly in immigration, the labor market, and development.

Her work has been funded by the Kauffman Foundation, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and other agencies. Her recent work includes research on immigrant, ethnic, and female entrepreneurship, and transnational migration of the highly skilled, especially in the higher education sector.
