Steve Simmons

Research Associate

Biography Dr Simmons is a post-doctoral researcher with interests in the development of our understanding of sedimentary processes through the application of novel acoustic measurements of flow and sediment transport over scales ranging from the laboratory flume to the deep ocean.

His current projects include the analysis of the suspended sediment and flow structure of oceanic turbidity currents monitored in the Monterey and Congo submarine canyons.

Other projects include the monitoring of suspended sediment over river dunes and in the wake of wind turbine supports and fishing trawler gear, as well as laboratory measurements of flow in the wake of tidal turbines.
