Jens Peter Kofoed

We conduct research within the field of ocean waves and hydrodynamic modelling, with particular focus on marine renewables and coastal structures.

Our research is primarily carried out through externally funded collaborative projects, involving both private and public organizations, and our teaching is primarily aimed at master level courses within civil engineering and PhD courses within its primary field of research.
