David is a mechanical engineer who specialises in the physical and numerical modelling and analysis of wave energy converters. For his PhD, David parametrically characterised the nonlinearities that influence Oscillating Wave Surge Converter behaviour. Since joining the Policy and Innovation Group, David has worked on the development of techno-economic models of wave energy converters, their components and arrays. David also evaluates the socio-economic impacts of marine renewable energy deployments; their impacts on regional GVA and job creation.
