Summary

Agota Mockute has joined the EEI in 2019 to work on offshore wind energy. Her research focusses on wave load modelling on offshore wind turbines and their response. Agota has graduated from the University of Birmingham with MEng in Civil and Energy Engineering, Honours, in 2015. She has then completed an International Doctorate in Civil and Environmental Engineering between the University of Florence (Italy) and TU Braunschweig (Germany), being awarded her PhD in 2019. Agota's current work focusses on offshore wind knowledge transfer between the industry and academia, as well as continued work on wave loading on monopile-supported offshore wind turbines in rough seas, and the effect of highly nonlinear resonant phenomena on the structural response and remaining useful lifetime.
