Hello, I'm Stephen, an engineering graduate from Imperial College London with a passion for solving technical problems. I have a Master's degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering and have been learning to code since age 10.
I'm originally from the South of England, studied in London, and now working for an energy company in the Netherlands.
My enjoyment of numerical and analytical challenges led me through an academic path to engineering. From my degree I have absobed a broad knowledge of structural and geotechnical, and metocean design. Since graduating I continue to build on this basis as well as branching into the interface between commercial and technical decision-making.

I love to create simple and valuable online platforms for mobile and desktop devices. Working on a variety of client and personal projects, I have developed a broad (full stack) skillset for planning, crafting, and deploying websites and apps.
This paper concerns the field measurements of wave crest elevations and wind speed obtained from fixed platforms in the North Sea during the period of 2011 to 2015. An improved quality control process is proposed by the authors aiming to maximise the amount of waves that are not discarded, whilst maintaining a reliable database. Applying this revised methodology, the total number of waves in the quality-controlled dataset is approximately 184 million. In total, the measurements correspond to 32 years of continuous data and contain approximately 0.0054% of rogue waves, according to the definition of Haver (2000). As the sea-state steepness increases, it is observed that the measured crest elevations are poorly modelled by the Forristall (2000) distribution; similar behaviour is observed for sea-states with high wind speeds. The model by Tayfun and Fedele (2007) is shown to be a better alternative in these cases, demonstrating that non-linear amplification beyond second-order cannot be neglected.

Crafting a simple interface that is enjoyable to interact with is at the hert of good web design. Once a design is drafted in line with corporate branding, it should be implemented with modern coding practices and technology.
Powerful back-ends are the core of conventional web platforms, providing security and performance. Up to date code libraries and a logical application architecture must be maintained to safeguard your user data.
My skillset encompasses bespoke content management systems, data security and authentication, remote APIs, programmatic image manipulation, Apache, MySQL, and more.
