I am part-time Assistant Professor in the group 'Marine and Fluvial systems' and focus my research and lecturing activities on physical processesĀ of river systems.Ā 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 mechanicsĀ and sediment transportĀ processes. Flow theory, laboratory experiments, computational modelsĀ and field observations all contribute a piece to the puzzle, and if they reveal some governing river behaviourĀ IĀ find thatĀ just awesome!

Vakken in het huidig collegejaar worden toegevoegd op het moment dat zij definitief zijn in het Osiris systeem. Daarom kan het zijn dat de lijst nog niet compleet is voor het gehele collegejaar.
