Hugo is a PhD student with the Agents, Interactions and Complexity (AIC) research group within the department of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS).
Hugo's undergraduate was is in ship design and naval architecture, also at Southampton, graduating in 2022. This led to an interest in computational ship design and its context, including transport system design and socioeconomic systems. Hugo started his PhD in September 2022. This project focuses on investigating the systemic impacts of maritime emissions regulation, and their implications for shipowner financial and technical strategy.
