I work as a research associate in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering of Imperial College London. My primary research activities are currently revolving around ocean and coastal modelling. In particular, I am active in:
- Identification of highly bio-productive regions via global tidal simulations of ancient continental configurations.
- Quantification of environmental impact from infrastructure.
- Tsunami hazard identification and mitigation.
- Research Data Management in computational science.
- Mesh Generation for ocean and coastal modelling.
I also worked on the development of computational methods and software; I have contributed to several open-source projects, such as the Fluidity code the PyRDM library and the qmesh project.
