My research group combines fundamental and applied research topics. Fundamental topics include:mechanics of sediment transport, high-resolution description of hydrodynamic and morphodynamics in subaerial and submarine meandering channels, dynamics of anabranching rivers, long-term prediction of river morphodynamics, development of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models for environmental flows, environmental hydrodynamics, and transport and mixing processes. Applied topics include: river restoration, bank protection using instream-structures, development of GIS-tools for river management, development of CFD models for hydraulic structures (e.g. dropshafts and fish-passage canoe-chutes). The EPEF research group seeks understanding of geophysical processes in laboratory-scale (theoretical, physical experiments, and numerical approaches) and field-scale (theoretical, numerical and field work).
