Wing's research interests include how to develop public-private partnerships to address cumulative impacts of offshore wind development on wildlife.
After completing a B.A. in biology at Colorado College in 1996, Wing conducted wildlife field work across the U.S. and in the tropics. He then received an MPhil at College of the Atlantic where he conducted scientific research on seabirds within a framework of environmental law, policy, and economics. Since 2001 he has worked as a field biologist, program director, and now deputy director at Biodiversity Research Institute (BRI). This work at BRI, an ecological research nonprofit, has been complemented by nonprofit board work (Natural Resources Council of Maine, Maine Conservation Voters, and College of the Atlantic) and professional board work (Maine Board of Environmental Protection, Casco Bay Estuary Partnership, and Falmouth Conservation Commission).
