Professor of Geophysics, Imperial College London
Professor Yanghua Wang is distinguished for providing worldwide leadership and innovation in the emerging field of petroleum reservoir engineering geophysics. His outstanding achievement has been to move reservoir geophysics from relative obscurity into a position of strategic importance across the entire international petroleum industry. He is eminent for inventing and pioneering the implementation of a wide range of geophysical engineering technologies, which have been subsequently adopted industry wide. His pre-eminence was recognised in 2019 by his appointment as the Director of the newly established Resource Geophysics Academy in London.
