Research interests

 I'm working on sediment transport in estuaries, mainly based on field data, collected at estuarine sites in Northern Germany. I'm specifically interested in the interaction between sediment-induced stratification and estuarine flow, for example in the highly turbid Ems estuary. Next to typical shallow water instruments, e.g., hydroacoustic profiling devices, I'm using optical methods to obtain information on size and structure of suspended particles.
