Personal profile


I am interested in wave-structure and fluid-structure interaction problems applied to offshore renewable energy and offshore engineering, as well as fundamental research in these areas.  My offshore renewable energy work includes wave energy, floating offshore wind, floating solar, etc.

My philosophy is to work collaboratively with great people on interesting projects.  I have been fortunate to be able to do this at UWA since 2014.  Our research is strongly linked to and supported by industry - see "Projects" below.
