Dr Emiliano Renzi
Dr Emiliano Renzi is a Lecturer in Applied Mathematics at Loughborough University.
Dr Renzi was Principal Investigator at University College Dublin (Ireland) on a ground-breaking research project on storm surge early detection: "Underwater acoustic sensing for detection, early warning and increased risk awareness of storm surges with application to Ireland", funded by the prestigious AXA Research Fund.
His research addresses some interrelated challenges in environmental resources and energy which are relevant to the sustainable development of the built environment in coastal cities.
Dr Renzi is exploring new interdisciplinary ideas at the intersection of wave dynamics, acoustics, meteorology, geophysics and computer science. He is very active in the computational modelling of wave energy converters (WECs), with special interest in the Oyster WEC developed by Aquamarine Power. Dr Renzi's recent research activities focus on innovative technologies for the early warning of coastal flooding.
Dr Renzi is a member of the Society of Energy Fellows at MIT, "the next generation of energy innovators, scientists, engineers, policy leaders, and entrepreneurs who will help transform our global energy systems” (E. Moniz, US Secretary of Energy and former director of MITEI).
