Emily is a Civil Engineer with a particular interest in offshore structures and sustainability. She graduated from the University of Bristol with an MEng in Civil Engineering with Study Abroad. Her final year focus involved assessing extreme loading on structures, specifically earthquakes, hurricanes and landslides, for developing countries. She is part of the Renewable Energy Marine Structures Centre for Doctoral Training, funded by the EPSRC.
Emily is particularly interested in applying recent technological developments in data capture and analysis to renewable energy structures to explore potential benefits to the sector. The objective of her DPhil project is to develop a framework which can infer the foundation properties of an offshore wind turbine with monopile substructure from monitoring instrumentation data. This is motivated by the potential for remote detection of foundation damage and the provision of insight into the complex behaviour of full-scale monopiles.
