Giovanni Cuomo

Giovanni specialises in the dynamics of currents-waves-structures interaction

Job title: Research Director

Professional background: Chartered Engineer; PhD in Science of Civil Engineering; MSc in Civil Engineering; Member of Institution of Civil Engineers (MICE).

When did you join HR Wallingford? In 2008. Prior to this, I was a visiting researcher in universities and research institutes in Europe, USA and Japan, and worked for international engineering consultancies.

How do you apply your knowledge? I specialise in the dynamics of currents-waves-structures interaction and its application to performance design of maritime structures. My expertise ranges from physical model testing, development and application of advanced computational fluid dynamics models, to field monitoring and risk assessment of strategically relevant maritime and hydraulic structures and infrastructures. I have been involved in the design and modelling of coastal and hydraulic structures and harbours world-wide. Furthermore, I participate in national and international collaborative research projects for the development of design guidelines and methodologies for risk assessment in flood, earthquake and tsunami-prone areas and am also a reviewer for international journals and conferences.

What do you enjoy about your work? I enjoy working with the leading experts in their fields to provide smart solutions to challenging problems and being at the cutting edge of developments in my specialisms.
