About Me

My PhD research focuses on nature based solutions for mitigation of salt water intrusion in estuaries. This is a project under SALTISolutions. The aim of this research is to provide a better understanding of how the ecosystem engineering species modify their physical environment and therefore modify, maintain and create habitats. The focus is to study the epibenthic ecosystem engineers (mussels, oysters and vegetation etc). The research aims to understand the interplay between these ecosystem engineers, hydrodynamics, morphodynamics and nature based solutions and to predict these effects on a longer time scales of years to decades.
