Dr E. Renzi - Principal Investigator
I am a Senior Lecturer in Applied Mathematics at Loughborough University and leader of the Special Interest Group in Mathematical Challenges of Nonlinear Waves and Interfacial Dynamics funded by the UK Fluids Network.
I am also an EPSRC Engineering Engagement Champion. I'm acting as an advocate for EPSRC and the Engineering and Physical Sciences.
I am exploring new interdisciplinary ideas at the intersection of applied mathematics, wave dynamics, acoustics, geophysics and computer science.
I am very active in the computational modelling of wave energy converters (WECs), with special interest in the Oyster WEC developed by Aquamarine Power.
My recent research activities also focus on innovative technologies for the early warning of coastal flooding.
I am a member of the Society of Energy Fellows at MIT, "the next generation of energy innovators, scientists, engineers, policy leaders, and entrepreneurs who will help transform our global energy systems” (E. Moniz, US Secretary of Energy and former director of MITEI).
