Institute for Infrastructure and Environment Themes
Fire Safety Engineering
I am a Post Doctoral Research Assistant at the Institute for Infrastructure and Environment. I have an extensive background in hydrodynamic, river morphodynamics and interaction between river hydrology, sediments and riparian plants dynamics. My research investigates the physical processes controlled by the Navier-Stokes equations, including those controlling the interaction between water flow, sediment erosion, and riparian vegetation dynamics, and those dictating the wildfire rate of spread and firebrands dynamics. I am particularly interested in understanding how climate change can influence the spatial and temporal scales of these processes. Recently, I have been working on a project that aims to use satellite data to support the management of offshore wind farms.
My work combines mathematical and numerical modelling, remote sensing analysis, and field and laboratory observations.
