Personal profile

Personal Statement

Abel is working as Research Associate in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME) at the University of Strathclyde. He works on the development of a novel wave energy converter based on hydrodynamic lift forces (LiftWEC), with Prof Feargal Brennan and Dr Weichao Shi. Further details on the project can be found on the project’s website.

Previously, Abel worked as Research Associate at the Institute for Energy Systems (IES) at the University of Edinburgh. He worked on the fluid dynamics of smart and morphing blades for load alleviation of tidal turbines, with Dr Ignazio Maria Viola and Dr Anna Young, from University of Bath.

Abel has vast experience in experimental flume and tank testing, flow diagnostics (PIV, LDV, ADV) and low-order vortex modelling. He is keen in combined fluid problems with structural dynamics and control engineering.
