Miss Chrysoula Anastassopoulos is a postgraduate research student within the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton. Chysoula is currently researching novel geotechnical design methods for offshore wind foundations as part of the activities of the Royal Academy of Engineering Chair in Emerging Technologies in Intelligent & Resilient Ocean Engineering (IROE).

My research uses data-centric approaches to improve the geotechnical design outcomes of foundations and anchors for offshore wind turbines and to help to inform the layout of offshore wind farms, contributing towards the transition to renewable energy.

My PhD research looks at the development of machine learning approaches in order to enhance geotechnical design approaches and outcomes for offshore wind turbine foundations. After developing novel design techniques, my project will seek to explore the potential effects of seabed conditions and factors such as foundation cost and installability, in influencing the site layout of wind farms.

I graduated from the University of Southampton in 2021 with a First Class Honours MEng degree in Civil Engineering.
