Personal profile

Academic background

Paul graduated in 2020 with an MSc. Degree in Hydraulic Engineering at the faculty of Civil Engineering of Delft University of Technology. His Master Thesis involved an experimental study on the dissipation of wave energy due to complex coral reefs. These experiments were conducted in the wave flume of the fluid mechanics laboratory of Delft University of Technology.

After graduating, Paul commenced a PhD in Coastal Engineering. He is studying dune erosion during storm surges. This study includes a large-scale fieldwork experiment in which two 1:1 scale dunes were constructed along the Dutch coast. These dunes were observed and monitored during storms to obtain more knowledge about dune erosion.

The topic of his research is: “RealDune – Dune erosion during storm surges”.
