I am currently working on my Masters thesis in Earth Science through the University of Waikato. My topic is looking at the “Potential impacts of wharf extensions on the hydrodynamics of Stella Passage and upstream regions of Tauranga Harbour”, New Zealand. I was awarded a ‘Science and Engineering Masters Fees Award’ from the University of Waikato and an ‘External Study Award (ESA)’ from the Port of Tauranga to undertake this research. I am using Delft3D software and Matlab to develop a nested hydrodynamic model. Finish date is August 2016.
