Wave Phenomena

I am interested in problems relating to the interaction of waves with structures in a variety of settings including fluids, elasticity, electromagnetics and acoustics. The main application areas are:

  1. Theoretical modelling of ocean wave energy converters.
  2. Metamaterials in water waves and acoustics.
  3. The interaction between ice sheets and ocean waves.
  4. Water wave propagation over variable bathymetry.
  5. The interaction of ocean waves with very large/complex structures.
  6. Trapped waves, edge waves and near trapping.
