Assistant Professor

About Me

I am part-time Assistant Professor in the group 'Marine and Fluvial systems' and focus my research and lecturing activities on physical processes of river systems. I obtained my PhD in 2007 in this same group (Thesis "Modeling Hydraulic Resistance of Floodplain Vegetation") and after that I have worked as consultant and researcher on river management and integrated flood risk management projects in the Netherlands, Germany, the United States, Mozambique and Myanmar.

I am fascinated by the complexity of river systems and find pleasure in trying to understand their dynamics in terms of fluid mechanics and sediment transport processes. Flow theory, laboratory experiments, computational models and field observations all contribute a piece to the puzzle, and if they reveal some governing river behaviour I find that just awesome!
