Summary

Agota Mockute has joined the EEI in 2019 to work in the field of offshore wind.

Her research focusses on knowledge exchange between the key stakeholders in offshore wind and the natural environment, to enable sustainable expansion of this renewable energy technology to meet the Net Zero emissions targets. Moreover, work through supervision is continued 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.

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.
