Mr Andrew Jewitt is a Postgraduate research student within the Centre of Excellence for Intelligent & Resilient Ocean Engineering – Royal Academy of Engineering Chair in Emerging Technologies at the University of Southampton. Andrew is supervised across the Infrastructure Group within the School of Engineering and the Geology and Geophysics Group within the School of Ocean and Earth Science.

My research investigates the potential of geophysical data to inform engineering design through the derivation of geotechnical parameters from seismic data.

My current research is investigating how informative geophysical data can be and will explore the potential of using geophysical data to inform engineering design through the derivation of geotechnical parameters from seismic data. My work forms part of the activities of the Royal Academy of Engineering Chair in Emerging Technologies in Intelligent & Resilient Ocean Engineering.

My research is multi-disciplinary and I am supervised by Prof Susan Gourvenec in Engineering and Profs Tim Henstock and Justin Dix in Ocean and Earth Science. I am also co-supervised by Dr Mark Vardy, Director and Head of R&D at SAND Geophysics.

I graduated from the University of Hull in 2018 where I obtained a BSc honours degree in Geology. In 2019-2020 I studied a Master’s in Exploration Geophysics at the University of Leeds where my thesis was titled “Implementing interpolation algorithms to improve near surface reflections”.  

Research interests

The areas of research that I am interested in are focused around seismic data and imaging of the seabed and near surface. My MSc project focused on improving the quality of Ultra High-Resolution Seismic Data and overcoming Spatial aliasing. I am currently interested in exploring the potential of extracting parameters from seismic data, which can help to characterise the near-surface sediments in terms of acoustic and physical properties. In doing so, it would act as an enabler to provide characterisation of the subsurface and allow an integrated geoscience approach to site investigations.
