People Professor Guy Houlsby

Co-Director, Programme on Globalising Tidal Power Generation


Professor of Civil Engineering

Professor Houlsby is a civil engineer with research interests in geotechnical engineering, offshore engineering and renewable energy. His work in geotechnical engineering has been on a number of applications, especially offshore foundations and in-situ testing. He also has a strong interest in the development of fundamental theories for soil behaviour, and on the applications of numerical methods (both finite element analysis and other techniques).

He leads work at Oxford on tidal power, where he is concerned both with the development of efficient devices, and in the modelling and understanding of tidal resources.
