Jared Charles is a Senior Research Assistant within Engineering and the Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Jared Charles is a Senior Research Assistant in the Centre of Excellence in Intelligent & Resilient Ocean Engineering, part of the activities of the Royal Academy of Engineering Chair in Emerging Technologies in Intelligent & Resilient Ocean Engineering, at the University of Southampton. He is part of the Infrastructure Group within the Department of Civil and Maritime Engineering, part of the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences.

My research is focussed on developing novel technologies for geotechnical characterisation of seabeds with reduced vessel support and optimisation of offshore foundation and anchor design accommodating spatially variable seabeds. My work relies on mathematical, numerical and physical model testing with particular emphasis on the role of emerging technologies in improving engineering outcomes. The motivation of my research is to assist the global transition to offshore renewable energy.  My work forms part of the activities of the Royal Academy of Engineering Chair in Emerging Technologies in Intelligent & Resilient Ocean Engineering.

I graduated with a first class MEng degree in Civil and Structural Engineering from the University of Sheffield in 2016. I then began a PhD at the University of Sheffield which was submitted for examination July 2020. My thesis “Reconstruction of Soil Stress-Strain Response Using Optimisation” demonstrated and validated a methodology by which optimisation and the conservation of energy can be used to recover a soil stress-strain response from imaging and loading data.

Research interests

I am interested in novel techniques by which soil properties can be measured as well as in the comparison between modelled and actual soil behaviour. The use of mathematical optimisation, be it for design or other purposes, is also of particular interest.
