Prof Peter Stansby

Peter Stansby has been Professor of Hydrodynamics at Manchester University since 1990. 

He obtained his BA in Engineering and his PhD in Aerodynamics at Cambridge University. He then worked for Atkins Research and Development near London on wind and offshore engineering for two years. On moving to Manchester University in 1980, his early research interests were in wave and current loading on offshore structures, specializing in vortex-induced vibrations. Since around 1990 he has worked on coastal hydrodynamics, mainly in relation to shallow-water flows and surf zone waves.
