River Processes

River Processes

We use flumes to study the sedimentary river processes that take place when individual grains (sediment) and water transform concurrently, dynamically and interactively. One of my main research interests is in sediment pattern characterisation, such as ripples and dunes, which are commonly observed at beaches ...

Fluid Dynamics

Fluid Dynamics

Studying near-bed fluid dynamics over mobile sediment beds is challenging. There is the measurement challenge on the one hand, needing equipment that is suitable to provide near-bed flow data, which can be spatially and temporally decomposed. On the other hand, the mobile nature of the boundary does not allow ...

Ecohydraulics

Ecohydraulics

Here we study the combined hydraulic, geomorphic and ecological effects on natural and managed water-worked systems. Present projects concentrate on fish-passage optimisation and effects of large wood on channel morphology ...

Sensor technologies

Sensor technologies

We developed the world's leading close-range 3D stereo-vision system for gravel-bed studies. It allows instant capturing of Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), resolving over 30 million points/m2. Recently ...
