Research Interests

My research interest is in understanding coastal hydrodynamics, sediment transport and the resulting morphological changes; and in developing tools for coastal managers and consultants that can be used to predict of future changes. The real challenge is to describe and predict the complex processes around coastal structures and their influence on natural systems, such as shoreline changes, water quality and natural habitats. This is in line with current Foresight programme on coastal flooding and erosion, Water Framework directives (water quality and habitats) and development of the offshore sustainable energy devices.
