Dr Hannah Power is a lecturer and coastal scientist in the School of Environmental and Life Sciences at the University of Newcastle. Hannah's primary research focuses on the study of coastal processes and geomorphology of sandy beaches. Of particular interest to Hannah are the hydrodynamics of waves after breaking and the implications this has for sediment transport and swash zone processes. Hannah's interests also extend to the processes and geomorphology of coral reef systems as well as beach erosion and coastal hazards such as storm surge and tsunami. Hannah has experience in coastal hydrodynamics, coastal and reef geomorphology, sediment transport, hydrodynamic modelling, statistical analysis, computer programming, remote sensing, and GIS/spatial analysis.
