Personal profile


Jana works as a Research Fellow at the University of Western Australia (UWA) focusing on marine renewable energy. She is passionate about development of ocean technologies, and is applying her mathematical and numerical skills to solve challenging and practically important problems in the field of hydrodynamics.

Jana has a PhD in coastal and ocean engineering from the University of Oxford, UK, and her undergraduate and Masters degrees were in mathematics. Following her PhD, she worked in industry for 4 years, before returning to academia in 2016.


Jana’s work focuses on wave-structure interactions with applications to renewable energy. She studies both wave energy converters, which are machines designed to convert wave energy into electricity, as well as floating offshore wind turbines. She is interested in non-linear excitation mechanims in these systems. She has close links with offshore industry, and her work contributes towards safer, more reliable and more economical marine energy systems. From 2022, she has been a Deputy Program Leader of the Offshore Renewable Energy Systems in the Blue Economy CRC.
