Personal profile

Biography

I work within a group of researchers at UWA on fluid mechanics problems relevant to both the oil and gas and marine renewable energy industries. The problems I work on span through the water column, and include: the stability and scour of subsea infrastructure at the seabed; the optimum arrangement of marine renewable energy devices; and the hydrodynamics of floating bodies. I use a range of field data, laboratory testing and numerical modelling in my research.
