Research interests

I work on coastal and shelf seas modelling of hydrodynamics and waves. My speciality is coastal oceanography and coupled modelling. I am interested in waves and their interactions with currents, turbulence and sediment transport. I  have worked on wave modelling over many years and been involved in acquiring wave observations (in-situ and remote sensing). I initiated the development of the coupled wave-current model (POLCOMS-WAM) and work on wave climatology. The applications of my work are in Marine Renewable Energy and coastal impacts of climate change. 

Current projects

EPSRC EcoWatt2050 (2014-2017): Led by Prof Jon Side at Heriot-Watt University, this project aims to understand the combined impact of climate change by 2050 with the effect of large arraqys of offshore renewable energy device such as tidal turbines.

EPSRC ARCoES (2012-2017): Led by Prof Andy Plater at Liverpool University, this project looks at the adaptation and resilience of coastal energy systems.

Recently completed projects

EU FP7 RISES-AM- (2013-2016): Led by Prof Agustin Sanchez Arcilla at Universita Politecnica de Catalunya, this project addresses adaptation and resilience of the coast to climate change, especially looking at novel adaptation measures.

Older projects
