Professor Charles Wang-Wai Ng FREng

CLP Holdings Professor of Sustainability, 

HKUST (Hong Kong)

Elected President of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering in 2017, Professor Charles Ng is a civil engineer with expertise in the interaction of soils and structures. An authority on testing unsaturated soils, and on landslide risk mitigation, he has been editor of the journal Landslides since 2003.

He collaborated with plant scientists to define the benefit of “greening” Hong Kong’s steep slopes, using plant roots both as reinforcement and to maintain helpful suction. He leads a team aiming to reduce the threat of fast debris flows using novel barrier systems, enhancing safety and improving the environment.
