Research interests

I'm interested in understanding how structures withstand extreme wave loading. Historic lighthouses, seawalls and breakwaters are still standing after many years, having endured an incredible battering. There is no rest for them, as they are still required to warn mariners of hidden perils beneath the waves, or to protect critical infrastructure. However, even modern structures have famously failed in the face of tsunami waves of unimaginable size. I've led a number of research projects, mostly funded by the EPSRC (OVI, X-MED, FROTH, ENFORCE, STORMLAMP), that have tried to understand the wave loading phenomena and the design of structures in the marine environment.

I've also developed an interest in debris flow and flooding, recently securing NERC funding for two projects: C-FLOOD and SENSUM.

The facilities in our COAST Laboratory have been brilliant to use as we try to physically model different scenarios. I've also been known to go into the field for my research and occasionally get involved in numerical modelling.
