Flood Mitigation Measures in the UK
Supervisor: Dr Udayangani Kulatunga
Year of commencement: January 2014
Isong’s area of study looks at resilience at flooding and emergency management. The research would aim to carry out comprehensive literature review and seek to identify the gap in the body of knowledge, with respect to flooding in the United Kingdom. Thereafter, the study would possibly evolve methods and models suitable to bridge the identified gaps.
A case study research approach will be adopted to identify the flood mitigation measures used in the United Kingdom; and explore the strengths and weaknesses of those methods. The research will build on the effort of present exploratory work and guiding legislations and framework, which has already been put in place. There will be need to apply knowledge acquired from my Civil/structural Engineering background in this respect.
Isong completed his BEng (Civil Engineering) at Nsukka, Nigeria. He completed his (Structural Engineering) Benin, Nigeria. And he completed his MPhil in Material Engineering in Liverpool
