Dr. Hong received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Civil Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology. After a postdoctoral research position at Georgia Institute of Technology, he joined the Faculty at West Virginia University as an assistant professor. Dr. Hong’s research expertise lies in environmental fluid mechanics, with an emphasis on the sediment-water interface in natural watercourses and the hydrodynamic processes that occur sediment suspension/transport and local bridge scour.
Dr. Hong holds a professional engineering license (PE) registered in Ohio.
