I am Research Assistant in the EPICentre research group, studying tsunami interaction with urban coastlines.  Before this placement, I was an engineer within the Coastal Structures department at HR Wallingford for 12 years.  My responsibilities included managing, executing and reporting a wide range of commercial and research projects, using both CFD and physical modelling, typically performing hydraulic performance assessments of coastal and marine/ocean engineering structures. 

Research Summary

I have a PhD in multi-scale modelling of effluent dispersion in the marine environment, from Imperial College London (http://hdl.handle.net/10044/1/34690).  My PhD was supervised by Dr. Gerard Gorman, Prof. Matthew Piggott, and Matthew Wood (of HR Wallingford).   I investigated whether the unique numerical methods available within CFD model software Fluidity could progress the state–of–the–art in modelling effluent dispersion within the marine environment.  This included CFD modelling of jet dynamics, tidal motion within the European Continental Shelf, and effluent dispersion within the coastal-zone.
