Personal profile


Soroush received his BEng/MSc in Civil Engineering in 2009/2011 and complited his PhD in 2016 at the University of Warwick, where he studied pollution transport mechanisms in the nearshore region due to the combined effects of waves and currents. During his time at Warwick, Soroush studied coastal hydrodynamics through developing numerical algorithms and laboratory measurements. In 2015 he joined Coventry University. Soroush work is focused towards environmental hydraulics and fluid dynamics.

Vision Statement

Turbulent flow in fluid dynamics is amongst the hardest patterns we try to understand in nature! I try to understand the structure of turbulence, dispersion and diffusion under the combined effects of wave-currents in the nearshore region. The nearshore is the transition region between land and the continental shelf coastal plains, wetlands, estuaries, dunes, beaches, surf zones and the inner shelf. The nearshore is dynamically evolving and is under increasing threat from sea level rise, long-term erosion, extreme storms, and anthropogenic influences. Nearshore regions are vital to the national economy, security, commerce, and recreation. My research is focused towards understanding the nearshore processes which involves complex and multifaceted interactions between water, sediment, biota and humans.
