Assoc Prof Law Wing-Keung, Adrian

Associate Professor, School of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Director, EPMC

Assoc Prof Law Wing-Keung, Adrian

Dr Law obtained his B.Eng. degree from the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering, University of Hong Kong, and M. Sc. and Ph.D. from the Department of Civil Engineering, University of California at Berkeley. His first professional job was with Hydro-Research Science that performed physical and numerical modeling analysis related to hydraulics, coastal and water resources projects for government and private companies. Subsequently he was with the Geotechnical and Hydraulic Engineering Service of the Bechtel Corporation working on a wide area of hydraulic and coastal engineering, with primary focus on numerical modeling. From 1995 he has been teaching hydraulic and coastal engineering in the Nanyang Technological University.
