Personal profile

Research interests

Prof. Jun Zang is a Professor of Coastal and Ocean Engineering and the Deputy Head of Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering. 

She chairs the PRIMaRE Partnership for Research in Marine Renewable Energy, she is also an Associate Editor of the Journal of Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering (OMAE) and Frontiers in Marine Science, and an Editorial Board Member of several journals.  

Her research addresses key challenges in coastal and ocean engineering for the development of offshore renewable energy and improving the resilience and adaptation of coastal areas against extreme wave conditions. 

She has led/participated in a number of national and international collaborative research projects, which include the development of fast reduced-order engineering models and open-source engineering tools for predicting extreme wave impact on offshore wind turbine foundations, breaking wave impact on coastal protection structures, optimisation and survivability analysis of offshore renewable energy devices, and the development of advanced computational fluid dynamics tools for accurate simulation of violent wave-structure interactions, and coastal & urban flooding.
