Research Interests

Shelf sea and coastal impact modelling: Application and development of nested modelling systems to simulate 3D wave-circulation interactions, the net sediment transport which they cause, leading to changing coastal morphology, and coastal flood hazard. Coastal hazards monitoring: Development of new measurement systems that stream near real-time hazard information and provide data to calibrate/validate and develop predictive tools. 

All with the aim to improve our understanding of coastal process interaction and impact, under past, present and future climates.

Modelling expertise POLCOMS, WAM, SWAN, Telemac, XBeach and LISFLOOD-FP
