Designed and analysed scaled meandering streams as evidenced by 5 technical reports on river flow, bank erosion & planimetric changes which improved knowledge on bank erosion.
Consulted lab and field projects (river bank, beach profile & dunes stabilization & PIV measurements in Ottawa) as demonstrated by improved project productivity.
Trained students in River Engineering & Hydrology resulted in enhanced learning.
Collected, analysed & visualised data evidenced by development of 5 technical documents.
Developed a novel sand-fixing technique resulted in enhanced flexibility in river research.
Supported & trained an MSc student (from TU München) in modeling as demonstrated by successful degree completion.
Developed numerical codes for sediment transport & erosion/deposition into a flow model. Modelled 2D scour (flow depth 0.14m) & trench migration (flow depth 0.39m & trench depth 0.17m) & post processed, analysed & visualised data, resulted in 2 technical reports.
Produced technical reports on construction of a wharf (water depth of 55m) & application of marine mattresses for erosion control in 7 marine projects resulted in enhanced engineering knowledge.
Developed proficiency in flood risk assessment of bridges by designing experiments on river flooding hydrodynamics, local scour measurement using sonar & hydraulic loading and to improve UK transport infrastructure resilience & update UK’s CIRIA C742 manual
Efficient communication, client-facing skills, multidisciplinary teamwork, support & collaboration with UK clients in bridge management (e.g. Environment Agency, Network Rail & Devon County Council) international partners & modellers from 3 universities for proposal production & grant writing as verified via quality control & project administration
Quantitative skills in data post processing & analysis, programming, drawing, visualisation & instrumentation using +20 industries (identified via market knowledge) & international clients evidenced by 5 technical reports and presentations in 5 countries
Supported cost estimation, budget tracking and sticking to it, time management, scheduling, strategic planning & increasing productivity resulted in saving several thousand £
Conflict resolution, problem solving, Can-Do attitude; information management & website designer evidenced by cost reduction, effective use of resources & increasing project impact
Riprap design and construction for scour management at a model bridge pier
Did supervision of an MEng team, people management & supporting training on lab facility management, modeling flood flow and scour at bridge piers & data analysis evidenced by increased productivity and improved technical reports
