Research interest

Estuarine dynamics.
Estuarine dynamics

To understand the hydrodynamics driven by river-tide interactions and sediment transport processes in estuarine environments, in particular in the context of climate change and human pressures.

Microplastic transport
Microplastic transport

To improve the understanding and modelling of the behaviour, transport processes, and fate of microplastics. A particular goal is to define the role of transitional waters as source and sink of marine plastic debris.

Transport processes along the continuum
Transport processes along the continuum

To undestand the hydro-morphosedimentary feedbacks between neighbourg muddy coastal sytems and investigate the flux of sediments and microplastics through the estuary-coast-ocean continuum.

Strategy

Field measurements
Field measurements

In-situ observations of physical parameters: currents, turbidity, salinity, temperature, water level, waves.

Signal analysis
Signal analysis

Descriptive, statistical, harmonic and spectral (e.g. SSA, WCT, EMD, LSP, CD) methods for the analysis of time series.

Modelling
Modelling

Idealized and numerical (Eularian and Lagrangian) models of flow and transport of sediment and particles.
