Dr Jonathan Simm FREng
Chief Technical Director (Resilience), HR Wallingford Ltd
Dr Jonathan Simm has made a unique contribution in coastal and river engineering by making his own research, together with that of others, and knowledge and expertise in the subject area, available to the profession through production of guidance documents that have had a major impact on working practices. This was done in a period of fundamental change from the use of hard defences to working with nature using softer, more environmentally acceptable methods. He has facilitated this change by being principal author, editor or major contributor to over 20 such guidance manuals commissioned by UK, European and US authorities.
