Biographical Sketch

Dr. Harris Wong earned his BEng Degree from McGill University and PhD degree from University of California at Berkeley, both in Mechanical Engineering. After continuing briefly at Berkeley as a postdoctoral fellow, he joined the Levich Institute for Physicochemical Hydrodynamics at the City College of CUNY as a research associate. He moved to Northwestern University and took a research associate position jointly appointed by the departments of Engineering Sciences & Applied Mathematics and Materials Science & Engineering. He came to LSU in 1997. He is a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award in 2000. His research interests focus on surface-tension dominated phenomena, including foam flow in porous media, hydrodynamics of the human tear film, surfactant-induced interfacial dynamics, morphological instabilities and evolution of solid thin films, and micro heat pipes. His research work has been supported by NSF, NASA, the Louisiana Board of Regents, Louisiana Space Consortium, and American Chemical Society.
