The School of Marine Science and Technology (MaST) has world-leading research expertise in marine technology and marine science, a combination that is relatively rare “under one roof” in Higher Educational Institutes. We build success upon our core disciplinary research strengths. In addition, we will also embrace exciting new interdisciplinary research opportunities. By integrating our research expertise within marine science and technology we will establish interdisciplinary research groups working on topics such as marine renewable energy, low carbon shipping, ecosystem-offshore fluid-structure interaction, sustainable fisheries and ocean resource (e.g. hydrocarbons, metals, minerals and aggregates) extraction, all of which are of major societal importance. Marine Science and Technology forms an important part of the portfolio of world-class research conducted by Newcastle University. This highlights the research priorities of MaST and how they support the university’s research objectives, how our research links with international research programmes and initiatives and how we will translate research into impact.

Received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from the University of Cairo, Cairo, Egypt, in 2004 and 2008, respectively. He received the Ph.D. degree in electronics and communication from Cairo University in 2014. Dr. Soltan awarded the 2014-16 best thesis award from Cairo for his PhD thesis. He worked on circuit and system design in the fractional order domain during his PhD research. He is currently working as a research associate and EDA/CAD specialist at the School of Engineering, Newcastle University. Dr. Soltan worked as a teacher assistant at faculty of Engineering, Fayoum University for 9 years and worked as an R&D firmware engineer for 8 years. He also worked as an R&D manager for an LED company at Qatar for one year and half. His current research interests is about smart energy harvesting systems and power management for biomedical implantable devices and lab-on-chip systems. He is interested in the thermal impact of the implantable devices on the human tissues. He is interested in embedded system design for lab-on-chip system. He is also interested in the investigation of fractional circuits and systems, specifically in fractional order analog filters for signal processing and fractional order modelling for biomedical applications.

Dr Narakorn Srinil is leading the ‘Fluid-flexible structure iNterAction ReseArch’ (FlexNARA) team at Newcastle University, School of Marine Science & Technology. FlexNARA aims to address fundamental and multidisciplinary research in the areas of ‘Fluid-Flexible Structure Interactions‘ by developing cost-efficient reduced-order models and software tools which can be applied to Offshore Renewable Energy industry for predicting the effects of ocean current flow, wave, wind & ice loads on offshore rigid/flexible structures. Our goal is to bridge several gaps in our understanding and transfer the key theoretical-practical knowledge from the oil & gas to renewable energy sectors, both of which are of national importance for the UK economy, energy security and prosperity.
