Description about me

Ioanna Stamataki is a PhD student in the Civil Engineering Department of the University of Bath and is part of the WISE CDT. She received her Civil Engineering degree (MEng Civil Engineering) from the University of Bath, in 2014, and during her degree, she completed a dissertation on a hydraulics based project involving the study of flow over complex weirs such as Pulteney Weir in Bath. In 2014 Ioanna delivered and published her first conference paper entitled “Study of flow over weirs such as Pulteney Weir” at the 11th ICHE conference in Hamburg.

A summer placement with Edenvale Young Associates who specialise in the fluvial and maritime environment ensured her interest in hydraulics and modelling. The work included hydraulic modelling projects, design of river protection works, flood forecasting schemes, flooding probability and flood risk assessments.


Ioanna's main research interests are the analysis and modelling of flash floods through laboratory experiments and CFD modelling. The title of her project is "Advanced hydraulic modelling for flood risk analysis" and the objective of this study is using an existing in-house shallow water model to develop a verified and efficient 2D hydraulic model being able to accurately predict flood inundation extents in extreme events.
