dr.ir. B. Vermeulen (Bart)

Assistant professor in experimental water and sediment dynamics

About Me

I am fascinated by how water motion shapes rivers and coastal boundaries. I make use of the newest techniques in laboratory experiments and field measurements, to advance our understanding of how rivers and coastal seas function. In teaching, I hope to help students discover and develop who they are in relation to water and sediment dynamics.
