Sediment as a solution: protecting deltas against sea level rise

My work focuses on the future of anthropogenically influenced deltas and estuaries. As more people live and work in deltas, they increasingly are becoming altered and affected as we develop them and engineer them for our own use. My focus is how these changes affect morphology (the channels, bars and delta evolution) and sediment dynamics (delivery, sediment type, distribution) of estuaries and deltas. I use numerical modelling, experiments and field data to answer these questions.
