I am a PhD candidate at the department of Physical Geography working on the changing channel networks in rivers and estuaries. Rivers and estuaries are important natural landscapes of great importance for civilization and agriculture throughout the world, as well as hosting unique and vulnerable ecosystems. Flooding, droughts and shifting courses of flow paths can therefore have dire consequences. Therefore, I am focussing on the analysis and prediction of the complex behaviour of channel systems in rivers and estuaries. I am doing this both through analyzing time-varying spatio-temporal networks of the Western Scheldt estuary, as well as through numerous laboratory experiments in the Metronome in the Earth Simulation Laboratory
