He is passionate about exploring the role of science and STEM education in building disaster-resilient society in the age of various local and global crises. In so doing, he is committed to interdisciplinary approaches between science and other subjects such as history, social studies, RE and language.

Wonyong currently serves as NARST Strand 13 (History, Philosophy, Sociology and Nature of Science) Coordinator and Member of the Faculty of Social Sciences Research Ethics Committee at Southampton. He welcomes informal contacts from potential doctoral students interested in any of his research areas.
