Dr WONG Ngai Yuen, Louis 王毅遠
Dr Louis Wong obtained his BSc degree in Earth Sciences from HKU in 1999 under the Stephen Kam Chuen Cheung Memorial Scholarship, and PhD degree in Geotechnical Engineering from MIT under the Croucher Foundation Scholarship and the Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fellowship for Overseas Studies. His teaching and research interests are in engineering geology, rock mechanics and underground engineering. He is serving the editorial boards of Bulletin of Engineering Geology and the Environment (Springer), Engineering Geology (Elsevier), Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering (Springer) and Journal of Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (Elsevier).
Dr Wong was previously an Assistant Professor and Assistant Chair (Academic) in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. He also worked as a consulting tunnel engineer at CDM in the USA and completed the Engineering Geology Graduate (EGG) training with the Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO). Dr. Wong won the Richard Wolter’s Prize 2014 from the IAEG (International Association of Engineering Geology and Environment). Dr. Wong’s achievements in and contributions to teaching earned him the Nanyang Education Award at NTU for the academic year 2012/13.
