Dr Simon Waldman
Lecturer in Renewable Energy
|Biography||Simon gained his PhD at Heriot-Watt's Orkney campus, in the far north of Scotland. Orkney is an international hub for marine renewable energy development. Subsequently he has worked at the University of Edinburgh, Marine Scotland Science, and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in the USA.
Simon's research interests centre around renewable energy and the use of regional-scale hydrodynamic modelling to support human activities, understand their effects, and improve planning and policymaking.
|Research Interests||Simon's research interests centre around renewable energy and the use of regional-scale hydrodynamic modelling to support human activities, understand their effects, and improve planning and policymaking.
His main area of expertise is around tidal energy, but he is keen to explore problems affecting other energy sources too, and other areas where energy and physical oceanography meet.
Simon is a Fellow of the Software Sustainability Institute, with interests in the reproducibility of computational research and training for researchers in software best practice.
|Teaching and Learning||Simon leads and teaches on the university's MSc Renewable Energy programme.
He is also certified as an instructor for the Software Carpentry organisation, which teaches basic software development skills to academics to improve the efficiency and reproducibility of computational research.
