- Supporting the TeraWatt & EcoWatt2050 programmes.
- Uses of tidal flow modelling to predict environmental effects of tidal energy development.
I am working with the TeraWatt and EcoWatt2050 projects to investigate methods in hydrodynamic modelling. My particular interests are in the representation of tidal turbines in models, and improvements to the parameterisation of bed resistance.
