Personal profile

Personal profile

Dr Saeed Shaeri pursued a professional engineering portfolio for about 11 years in various client, consultant, and contractor companies in a number of onshore, nearshore and offshore projects, before commencing his PhD research in the field of Coastal Engineering, with a particular emphasis on hydrodynamics and sediment transport. After completing his research, and concurrent with teaching of various civil/mechanical engineering courses, Saeed worked for the Gold Coast City Council in the Natural Hazard Management team as a senior environmental modeller, conducting computerised simulation of hydrodynamics and water quality, along with required data collection activities.

Saeed’s areas of interest and expertise are hydrodynamic simulation of riverine and coastal environments, field measurements and onsite data collection, and climate change impact investigation on coastal environments. Saeed is interested to perform joint research on environmental water theme or other themes which encompass environmental water flow simulation, as well as data analysis.
