Dr. Wong conducts research in areas of geomechanics, well integrity and containment, completions, sand management, multiphase flows, and well operations (bean-up and ramp-up) for both producers and injectors. He is a recipient of the SPE Distinguished Membership in 2015 and the SPE Gulf Coast Regional Completion Optimization and Technology Award in 2013. He has 17 years of R&D and 14 years of deepwater development and production experiences in the industry. Before joining UH, Dr. Wong worked as a Production Engineering Advisor and Principal Technical Expert in Sand Control and Sand Management at Shell E&P Company, USA.
