Gabriel Weymouth appointed professor of Ship Hydromechanics
Gabriel Weymouth has been appointed Professor of Ship Hydromechanics at the department of Maritime and Transport Technology as of 1st of September. Weymouth's research focuses on the development of fast, accurate, and robust computational fluid dynamic predictions and application of those techniques to the marine and maritime environment. He develops methodologies for computational fluid mechanics and physics-informed machine learning and consults for software developers in those fields.
Gabriel Weymouth: “Hydromechanics analysis is being applied to an ever-broader field of new maritime applications, from wind-assisted cargo ships to offshore tidal and wind farms to underwater vehicles. At the same time, engineers need predictions for these diverse applications to be as fast and accurate as possible – challenging classical predictions methods. I’m looking forward to leading the group in our effort to research new experimental, numerical, and statistical approaches to meet these challenges.”
Gabriel Weymouth was Associate Professor of Marine Hydrodynamics at the University of Southampton and is co-lead of the Marine and Maritime Group within Data-Centric Engineering at The Alan Turing Institute. Between 2010 and 2012, Professor Weymouth was a Research scientist at the Center for Environmental Sensing and Modeling in Singapore. He performed investigations on the topics of coastal hydrodynamics, biological fluid dynamics, air entrainment and physics-based learning models. His doctoral research (2008) and post-doctoral position (2008-2010) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Ocean Engineering investigated the fields mixed two-phase fluid dynamics, hydrodynamic sensing, and tidal energy harvesting. He obtained an MSc in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Iowa and a BSc in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering from the Webb Institute in New York.
