I am a physical oceanographer with special interest in ocean modelling. I have experience of applying models to a broad range of research topics including marine renewable energy, past climate conditions, marine biosecurity and the aquaculture industry.
I have worked for several years as a physical oceanographer on a number projects, including:
as well as contributing to external projects (e.g., Angle Shark Project: Wales and SIARC) as an hydrodynamic- and biophysical modeller. In early 2023 I will be joining a 'blue carbon' project, the Convex Seascape Survey.
Particular areas of research interest include: numerical modelling (physical, biophysical), sediment dynamics, marine renewable energy, sea-level rise and climate change.
I have a range of research interests in which PhD projects could be developed. Please contact me by email in the first instance regarding any of the following areas:
- Tidal modelling (past, present or future)
- Marine renewable energy
- Dispersal of marine organisms (including invasive species and aquaculture)
