Assistant Professor

Research interests: Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) within a coastal or riverine setting. In particular: Fluid-structure interaction including the modelling of floating bodies and green water overtopping; Wave interaction with coastal structures such as wind turbine bases or caisson breakwaters, Development and use of effective numerical algorithms for solution of the free surface Navier Stokes equations; Wave loads on structures and moored bodies; Development and use of reduced dimension (shallow water) models both hydrostatic and with higher order dispersion effects; Development and use of numerical storm surge models; Modeling of wave breaking; Swash zone modelling; Development and use of hydro-morpho-dynamic models in a coastal setting.
