Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher, specialising on ship hydrodynamics. Much of my work so far has been focused on the numerical modelling (virtual re-creation) of fluid flow around ships in a variety of conditions using Computational Fluid Dynamics. I am particularly interested in studying scale effects which cause discrepancies in performance between a model and prototype vessel, as well as shallow water effects on ship hydrodynamics. But I am also active in other sub-disciplines of Computational Fluid Dynamics, such as discretisation uncertainty estimation, ship aero-hydrodynamics, and the more practical aspects of turbulence modelling.

I was awarded a PhD in July 2020 for my thesis Analysis of ship performance in deep and shallow waters using CFD, which I completed at the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering, where I obtained a Master's degree in Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering in May 2018. Within the Department, I support teaching activities on modules related to ship hydrodynamics, seakeeping, and ship operability in waves. At University level, I am part of the Open Access and FAIR (Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability) Data (OAFD) subgroup.

Some of my key activities include presenting my work around inland waterways transportation at the Scottish Parliament's Cross-Party Group on Recreational Boating And Marine Tourism (02/2021), Scottish Waterways for All (03/2021), and the UK Parliament's All Party Parliamentary Group for the Waterways (09/2021). I also co-organised the 9th International Conference on Computational Methods in Marine Engineering invited session on Applications of CFD in ship resistance and seakeeping.
