Research interests

I am interested in coastal processes particularly, sediment and flow dynamics.

Research project: The role of seagrass, Zostera noltii on sand transport in the intertidal flat of Ryde, Isle of Wight.

Seagrass meadows are capable of attenuating waves and currents, therefore alter the sediment dynamics and create stable beaches. Such meadows provide a sustainable natural defence to promote sediment retention and maintain the shoreline. This study aims to improve the understanding of sand mobilisation and flow dynamics in a Zostera noltii meadow by combining field measurements in the intertidal flats of Ryde, northeast of the Isle of Wight and laboratory experiments. The threshold of motion of sediment and effects of the vegetation on flow is studied in a recirculating long flume using mimics.
