Dr Matt Lewis a Research Fellow at Bangor University in physical oceanography, with applications to blue economy industries and coastal flood risk. His research uses computer models to numerically simulate marine processes, including how these processes interact and how they may change in the future. For example, how to downscale climate model information to impact, future changes to hazard in estuaries, or ocean-atmosphere exchange processes (e.g. wave-tide interaction).
Matt holds a EPSRC Research Fellowship in Marine Renewable Energy (METRIC: EP/R034664/1) and works on many research projects, including ERDF funded SEEC project (http://seec.bangor.ac.uk/). Matt is interested in using computer models to map the marine renewable resource and characterise met-ocean conditions.
Quality of the tidal energy resource adds value for renewable energy grids and off-grid power solutions
