    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    My main research interests are all linked to environmental fluid mechanics and urban drainage systems. More in detail, my research focuses on:

    - quantifying the flow and the mechanical processes associated with the flow exchange between urban drainage systems, with a strong focus on experimental modelling of urban drainage systems to provide novel datasets for validation of numerical models. As hydraulic models are increasingly being used to both plan significant asset investment and form the basis of flood awareness/warning schemes, the resulting improvements in modelling accuracy is anticipated to have significant benefits in terms of more efficient drainage design/investment and increased resilience to flood events.

    - quantifying the spread of pollutant and contaminates from sewer systems into surface flow during an event of flooding when the water is escaping from the manholes.

    - quantifying of the spread of pollutant and contaminates in vegetated rivers and natural areas.

    - assessing sediment transport and riverbank erosion in rivers.

    - improving measurement techniques with potential to remotely measure turbulence processes based on their linkages with the dynamic water surface. Accurate 3D measurement of turbulence-generated rough water surfaces is problematic hence more studies are requested to improve this sector.
