We study the formation of extreme waves on the surface of the ocean. These waves can be damaging and are a threat to navigation and possibly to wave energy converters in the future when they are operational. Better forecasting extreme waves is a key focus for my research. This area of research requires knowledge in statistics, fluid mechanics, wave motion, partial differential equations and numerical modelling.
