Professor Jack Hardisty

Professor of Environmental Physics/ Programme Director for MSc Renewable Energy/ SES Director for Taught Postgraduate Programmes

Summary

Jack Hardisty followed a degree in Physics from Kings College London with an MSc in Dynamical Oceanography concentrating on the mathematical modelling of waves and tides, and a PhD in shallow water wave equations. He was appointed to a New Blood lectureship in London University in 1983 and joined the Hull coastal group in 1988. He was appointed Senior Lecturer, Reader and then Professor of Environmental Physics in 1994. Jack has served as Head of Department, Dean of School and on a number of University committees and audit groups, and as Director of Research and Examinations Officer.
