Miss Noor Laham is a Post raduate research student within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

My research will contribute towards improving design efficiency and design life of ocean infrastructure, contributing towards the transition to renewable energy

I graduated with first class honours from the University of Bologna, Italy, in 2020 with a Master’s degree in Offshore Engineering.

In 2019, I worked as a research intern at the Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems at the University of Western Australia and then as an Erasmus Scholar at the University of Southampton where  I extended  my knowledge in the field of offshore geotechnical engineeringSubsequently,  I was offered a PhD position at the University of Southampton in the same field of study. I was awarded a Rayleigh Scholarship in addition to a contribution from the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute and the Royal Academy of Engineering Chair in Emerging Technologies for Intelligent & Resilient Ocean Engineering to fund my PhD research, which I commenced in 2020.

The specific aim of my PhD research is to study the through life effect of periodic and cyclic loads with intervening consolidation on seabed properties that in turn impact the response of offshore structures founded on or in the seabed. My research findings will be brought together into a predictive design methodology to create a Whole Life Geotechnical Design approach.
