I started working at the University of Exeter in 2012 conducting research into turbulent eddies at tidal energy sites. I was working with marine project management specialists at Mojo Maritime on a TSB funded project. The project HiFlo-4 addresses the need for an installation vessel to deploy tidal turbines in the demanding environment of tidal races.
I next worked on the DTOcean project, a large EU FP7 funded project with 19 partner organisation from 16 countries creating a design tool for ocean energy arrays or wave and tidal energy converters.
I am now working as part of the FaBTest site looking after the oceanographic data and providing site users and device developers with research output based on in-situ measurments and model output from the site.
Along side my employment as a research fellow I am currently studying towards my PhD. Before coming to UoE I studied Mathematics and Physics at the University of Bath.
