Ph.D. project

  • Analysis of the United Kingdom coastline resilience under Sea Level Rise (SLR).
  • Development of a new soft engineering technique, named dynamic revetment: design and test of this technique under erosive condition and rising sea level, using wave flume laboratory facility.
  • Analysis of morphodynamic behaviour of sandy beach and dynamic revetment under sea level rise.
  • Comparison of coastal impact of SLR with and without the structure using X-Beach model.

Previously studied

  • Two-year degree in Civil Engineering at the Institute of Technology of the University of Paul Sabatier, Toulouse.
  • BSc in Earth and Environment Sciences at the University of Bordeaux 1
  • Erasmus Mundus MSc in Marine Environment and Resources at the University of Bordeaux 1, the University of Basque Country and Southampton University.

Work experience

  • Foreman for the renovation of an orphanage in Latvia
  • Master thesis as a research technician in coastal management and physical oceanography for beach erosion protection, at the Gold Coast for Coastal Management department of Griffith University, Queensland, Australia. The objective of the project was to understand the impact of Narrowneck artificial submerged reef on the surrounded bar morphology, using Delft3D software.
