PhD: Flow modification in a tidal farm and potential effects on marine habitats
LEC 3 Building
I am originally from Pembrokeshire in West Wales. My undergraduate studies were at Swansea University where I studied for an MPhys in Theoretical Physics focusing on Particle Physics and Cosmology. Following my undergraduate studies I spent two years away from education working a number of different jobs in order save to fund a masters degree. I returned to education studying an MSc in Applied Marine Geoscience at Bangor University.
At Bangor my masters research project investigated the fate of waste from dredging work at Holyhead harbour which was dumped in the vicinity of a proposed tidal energy site. From Bangor I moved straight to Lancaster University to study for a PhD where I am investigating the potential interaction between tidal turbines and the marine environment.
