Lucy Massie

Project: Investigation of the fluid structure interaction of tidal turbines

Supervisors: Professor Shunqi Pan and Dr Zhihua Xie


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
