10 Additional introduction

I am working on a wide range of coastal and estuarine research and engineering topics. My research group consists of 2 PhD students and 8 MSc students (including a foreign student from Ecuador). The small group is very active with easy-going students. If you are interested in my research directions, join the group and let’s do some cool research together!
