Jared Charles has joined the IROE Centre of Excellence as a Research Fellow in Offshore Renewable Energy (Geotechnics).

Jared will be working initially on the IROE Characterisation and Stationkeeping work packages.

Jared will be developing novel technologies for geotechnical characterisation of seabeds with reduced specialist vessel support through combining physics-based machine learning methods and geophysical data. This project is being undertaken in collaboration with Dr Mark Vardy, Director and Head of R&D at SAND Geophysics.

Outcomes from the characterisation work will feed into design methods for optimisation of offshore foundations and anchors in spatially variable seabeds to enable efficient upscaling of offshore wind farm design.

The project relies on using emerging technologies, to improve efficiency of offshore geotechnical site investigation and geotechnical design of offshore infrastructure, to create the step change in viability of large scale offshore renewables required to make a significant contribution towards decarbonising the energy sector.

Find out more about Jared via the IROE People page or via his University website.
