Lucy Massie

Project: Investigation of the fluid structure interaction of tidal turbines

Supervisors: Professor Shunqi Pan and Dr Zhihua Xie

Background

Lucy graduated with an MSc in Computer Modelling and Finite Elements in Engineering Mechanics from Swansea University in 2016. Her dissertation was titled: ‘Methods of representing woody debris dams in a 2D hydrodynamic model.’ This project was focussed on identifying and testing ways in which to incorporate Natural Flood Management measures into a fully 2D hydrodynamic model, using TUFLOW and QGIS software. Prior to this, Lucy also graduated from Swansea University in 2014 with a BSc (Hons) in Mathematics.

Research Interests

  • Environmental impacts of climate change
  • Renewable energy development, particularly the application of computational fluid dynamics in the context of tidal energy
