I am Associate Professor of Maritime Technology with teaching duties on Principles of Naval Architecture and Ship Dynamics. In my research I combine knowedge from advanced ship theory and safety science for the prediction of sea loads, and responses of ships subject to extreme events. On the enabling research front I work on de-risking emerging technologies (e.g. big data analytics, nuclear technology, autonomy etc.) for use in the design and operations of safe and sustainable ships. I am European Engineer, Chartered Engineer, Fellow of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (UK), Member of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (USA) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (UK). I am member of the International Ships and Offshore Structures Congress since 2006, serving as member in various committees and chair of committee I.2 on Loads from 2008-2012. Part of my editorial duties involve Associate Editorship of the IMechE Proceedings Part M : Journal of Engineering for the Maritime Environment (ISSN:14750902, Sage Pub. Ltd).
