Biographical details

Since obtaining his PhD in wind engineering in 1978 from Monash University, Professor Kenny Kwok has made significant and sustained contributions to research and professional practice in wind engineering, structural dynamics, vibration control, human perception of motion, and environmental fluid mechanics, particularly with respect to the dynamic behaviour of tall buildings and flexible structures in strong winds. Professor Kwok’s research focuses on fundamental aspects of building aerodynamics and wind-structure-occupant-damper interactions, and their practical applications to real life situations. Professor Kwok rejoined the University of Sydney in 2017.
