Christelle Abadie is a University Lecturer in Civil Engineering. Prior to joining the University of Cambridge, she was a research assistant at the University of Oxford from 2016 to 2018. She received her DPhil (PhD) from the same institution in 2016 and her undergraduate degree from the French Engineering School ENSTA ParisTech.
Her research interests are offshore geotechnics, foundation design and constitutive modelling. Her recent work involved the development of improved and robust guidelines for the design of monopile foundations for offshore wind applications, addressing both ultimate limit state and the response to long-term cyclic loading. Her research projects have been conducted in close collaboration with offshore wind industries, such as EDF and Orsted.
