Visiting Specialist


PhD researcher in the Coastal Processes Research Group. The PhD aim is to increase the understanding of numerical modelling in macro tidal areas; applied to Porthtowan, Cornwall, UK. On the one hand in the sense of data collection using a local ARGUS camera system and on the other hand numerical modelling to mimic and predict the morphology.

A first focus point is the application and testing of cBathy code (Holman, 2013), mainly developed in micro/meso tidal area, in a macro tidal environment like Porthtowan. 

Supervised by: dr. Daniel Conley, dr. Mark Davidson and dr. Tim O'Hare
