College Celebrates New Appointment for Professor Paul Taylor

Monday 05 June 2017

Professor Paul Taylor, Shell-Pocock Fellow in Civil Engineering and Director of Studies for Engineering Science, has been appointed to a new chair in Ocean Engineering at the University of Western Australia.

The College celebrated this, and Professor Taylor's Keble teaching career of almost 20 years, with a special lunch on Saturday the 3rd of June. Over forty guests were in attendance, including Engineering alumni from as far back as the late 1950s, recent graduates, current students and a number of current and Emeritus Engineering Fellows, offering a fond farewell and wishing Paul all the best with his new adventures.

Professor Taylor will be taking up the post later this summer and will be continuing his research into waves with applications to oil platforms, marine renewable energy and coastal protection.
