About

Professor Adcock's research looks at how we understand and design for the ocean environment. His particular areas of interest include understanding the risks of storm surges, looking at how we can use design and engineering to protect ourselves against tsunamis and freak waves, and better exploitation of tidal energy.

He is also interested in engineering history, particularly the Mulberry Harbours which were used during the Second World War as part of Operation Overlord (the invasion of Normandy). His grandfather was one of the engineers who worked on their design and construction.
