Role

    

Prof Gregorio Iglesias (GI) is the Leader of the COAST Engineering Research Group and Professor of Coastal Engineering at the University of Plymouth. With over 20 years’ experience, his research deals with Marine Renewable Energy, coastal hydrodynamics and  processes, and coastal and port structures by means of physical and numerical modelling, and fieldwork. He has coordinated numerous laboratory tests of Wave Energy Converters (WECs) and breakwaters, and pioneered the application of Artificial Intelligence models as virtual laboratories for the design of coastal structures and the investigation of beach morphology. GI is a member of the IEC Technical Committee drafting the standards for wave energy device development (scale-model testing) and of the panel in charge of the Spanish Standards for Maritime Works (ROM). He acts as a reviewer for a number of international journals and research councils, has published over 100 journal papers and secured over £5M research income as Principal Investigator.
