Research interests

 

  • Multi-criteria decision making in the context of large river basins, which integrates elements of hydrology, flood prediction modelling, and an understanding of societal, economic, and political dynamics. My aim as an engineering scientist is to find ways of using local knowledge to improve flood protection measures in rapidly changing landscapes.

 

  • Theoretical modelling of water-particle interaction. This includes use of numerical models to understand the mechanisms of sediment-laden flows during extreme flood events, and to understand the impacts of long-term climate change and anthropogenic activities on river bank stability, sediment erosion, and scour around structures.

 

  • Marine, coastal and hydro renewable energy: understanding the interaction between coastal and fluvial structures, flow dynamics and bed morphodynamics.
