After an undergraduate degree in Mathematics, a Masters in Fluid Mechanics and a PhD in Physical Oceanography on 'Mixing and Stratifying Processes in the Oceanic Mixed Layer and Seasonal Thermocline', all in the UK, Prof Lucy Wyatt worked as a PostDoc in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins, Baltimore, USA investigating mixing across density interfaces.
After two years she moved back to the UK and worked on baroclinic instability in the Reading Department of Meteorology atmospheric modelling group, before moving to the Radar Group in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering as part of a team developing oceanographic HF radar systems. This has been the subject of her research ever since and she now calls herself a Radio Oceanographer.
Prof Wyatt eventually took up a more permanent academic position at the University of Sheffield in the School of Mathematics and Statistics and she is currently on three years leave of absence. At Sheffield she have been involved with the development of new methods to extract wave and wind information from these radar systems and in a number of national and international experiments to validate these measurements.
The Australian Coastal Ocean Radar Network (ACORN) is a facility of the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) funded by the Federal Government.
