Dr Antonia Chatzirodou is a Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering  specialising in Hydraulics, Integrated Water Resources Management, Water and Environmental Engineering. Dr Antonia is an active researcher in the field of Coastal Hydrodynamics and Coastal Sediment Transport Dynamics, Coastal Flood Risk Management, Coastal Flood Modelling and Forecasting, and Environmental Impact Assessments of Marine Renewables.  Prior to that Dr Antonia served as a Modelling and Forecasting Officer for the Environment Agency as part of the National Coastal Modelling and Forecasting (M&F) services in the National Operations Directorate (FCRM). Her role was related to the delivery of national once coastal activities and pulling through Research and Development activities into operations to improve coastal flood modelling and forecasting across England. Previously Dr Antonia undertook postdoctoral research in the College of Engineering at Swansea University. Her work was related with FloodMEMORY/EPSRC project (2012-2016) and involved the development of state-of-the-art computational coastal models to investigate morphological changes of coastal dune systems under extreme wave events. As a PhD researcher (Swansea University and EA/Welsh funded Low Carbon Research Institute studentship) Dr Antonia investigated the local and regional changes to tidal flows, sediment dynamics and coastal morphodynamics due to installation of Tidal Energy Converters (TECs), by use of state of the art coastal models. Her research outputs contributed also to EPSRC funded TeraWatt project (2012 – 2015) outputs. Her other early working experience includes surveying, consultation and engineering manager work with Transportation Engineering Consultants in Greece.
