My principal research interests lie in the field of human factors in maritime domain. I have investigated the effects of noise and vibration on human performance and developed a human response models for noise and vibration levels on-board ships. My research interests also include design, optimisation, operation of ships, by considering the human factors in the core of the subject.
Besides my main research area I have also been actively working in the area of ship recycling. For 8 years I have been working in this area and contributed development of tools, models and training tailored for the unique needs of ship recycling sector. I am also invoved in following EU funded ship recycling projects; FP7 DIVEST Project, LLP Ship DIGEST Project and LLP Boat DIGEST Project.
I am also actively attending IMO MSC and MEPC Meetings
