We are investigating better ways to manage the quality and quantity of our surface water resources.
Research unit for Water, Environment and Infrastructure Resilience
We investigate the broad issues of water research related to civil engineering. Climate change and water energy shortage are key drivers for our research.
We are developing new tools to better understand and predict the magnitude and frequency of natural hazards and extreme events.
In the Water, Environment and Infrastructure Resilience unit, we use our expertise in the laboratory and field to investigate coastal and ocean engineering.
We research infrastructure resilience to environmental change by measuring and modelling the impact of extreme events on engineering structures.
