Research Interests

  • Coastal hazard assessment (cross shoreline assessment)
  • Deformation and controlling factors of slope stability at continental margins and coastal areas
  • Acoustic imaging (marine 2D/3D seismics, sediment echo-sounder, multibeam bathymetry)
  • UAV (Drone) mapping/visualisation of coastal areas and shallow water
