Dr Louis Wong obtained his BSc degree in Earth Sciences from the University of Hong Kong in 1999; PhD degree and post-doctoral training in Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering from MIT in 2008. Dr Wong was previously the Assistant Chair (Academic) in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore. He has extensive industry experience in Hong Kong, Singapore and America on a variety of slope engineering and underground construction projects.His teaching and research interests cover engineering geology, rock mechanics and underground engineering, with particular focus on physical and numerical modelling of cracking processes and rock damage.
Dr. Wong has authored and co-authored more than 100 journal and conference publications.He is an editorial board member of the Journal Rock Mechanics and Rock
Engineering(Springer), Journal Engineering Geology(Elsevier) and Bulletin of Engineering Geology and the Environment(Springer)and Journal of Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (Elsevier).Dr. Wong won the Richard Wolter＇s Prize from the IAEG (International Association of Engineering Geology and Environment) in 2014, and the 2012/13 Nanyang Education Award at NTU.
