  • River Engineering
  • Flood-Sediment-Bridge Interaction
  • Coastal Engineering
  • Modelling of  
    • Flow hydrodynamics
    • Morphological changes (e.g. scour & bank erosion)
    • Structure, flow & sediment interaction
  • Data Analysis & Visualization
  • Designed and analysed scaled meandering streams as evidenced by 5 technical reports on river flow, bank erosion & planimetric changes which improved knowledge on bank erosion.
  • Consulted lab and field projects (river bank, beach profile & dunes stabilization & PIV measurements in Ottawa) as demonstrated by improved project productivity.
  • Trained students in River Engineering & Hydrology resulted in enhanced learning.
  • Collected, analysed & visualised data evidenced by development of 5 technical documents.
  • Developed a novel sand-fixing technique resulted in enhanced flexibility in river research.
  • Supported & trained an MSc student (from TU München) in modeling as demonstrated by successful degree completion.
  • Developed numerical codes for sediment transport & erosion/deposition into a flow model. Modelled 2D scour (flow depth 0.14m) & trench migration (flow depth 0.39m & trench depth 0.17m) & post processed, analysed & visualised data, resulted in 2 technical reports.
  • Produced technical reports on construction of a wharf (water depth of 55m) & application of marine mattresses for erosion control in 7 marine projects resulted in enhanced engineering knowledge. 

Numerical Code Developer (short term contract)

GEO Morphix Ltd., Milton, Canada

  • Developed a code for pre- to post-development hydrological analysis via using an open-source package (Scilab) resulted in saving license fee.Analyzed field data as demonstrated by interactive visualisation (maps, figures, charts).
