What is your career background?

Qualifying with a BSc (Hons) in Geoscience from University College Cork (UCC), I joined GDG in early 2019 where I completed a three-year industry-based PhD in Engineering/Marine Geoscience. During this time, I had the opportunity to lead multiple offshore research survey campaigns generating invaluable geophysical, geological and oceanographic datasets to support the growing offshore renewable energy industry. My expertise includes data-driven and numerical modelling-led analysis of metocean conditions, seabed morphodynamics and sediment transport for a wide range of coastal and offshore engineering applications.
