Associate Professor

About Me

My field of expertise is coastal sediment transport and morphology. I try to unravel coastal sediment processes through a combination of field measurements, lab experiments and numerical modeling. My part-time job at Deltares allows me to utilize this knowledge in world-wide applied research and consultancy projects.
