Assistant Professor

About Me

Short CV

Jord obtained his MSc in Physical Geography from Utrecht University in 2007, and a PhD from the University of Twente in 2011. During his PhD research he developed a method to identify uncertainties in (river) models and quantified the uncertainty due to the hydraulic roughness. The research was performed in close cooperation with Deltares in Delft and Jord cooperated with the University of Osnabruck, Germany and GEUS in Denmark. During his postdoc, he implemented a model to predict bed form roughness for operational water level predictions together with two PhD students. In 2014 he was appointed assistant professor at the University of Twente. Jord is successfully teaching the Hydraulic Engineering MSc course and developed the new BSc minor Smart Cities – Multifunctional flood defences. Furthermore, he is daily supervisor of two PhD students and multiple MSc and BSc students. Jord co-authored the granted research programs RiverCare (2014) and AllRisk (2016).
