Kristen is a coastal engineer and oceanographer interested on how sandy coastlines (namely beaches) erode and recover from changes in the size of waves, sediment supply, and water levels. She works extensively with numerical models to better understand the physical environment. She is also fascinated by rips and beach morphology and how it changes over […]
Karin conducts research under 4 themes that are related in their aim of understanding the dynamics of sediments and nutrients in the coastal environments, and how these contribute to controlling state changes in the physical environments. These themes are (1) dynamics of the swash and surfzone; (2) beach morphodynamics; (3) nutrient dynamics in estuaries; (4) tidal […]
Irene is a Reader in Coastal Processes at Edge Hill University (UK) with academic and work experience in Spain (BA, MSc Marine Sciences), Australia (visiting student), Canada (PhD), and Ireland (NERC Post-doc). She has received multiple awards and scholarships, and acts as a reviewer for a number of international journals and grant agencies such as […]
Emilia is a Postdoctoral fellow at the University Pablo de Olavide in Spain and has been recently awarded by a 2 years Postdoctoral Contract by the Spanish National Ministry of Research and Technology. She has a PhD in Environmental Sciences and her primary research goals are directed towards understanding the functioning of coastal ecosystems and […]
Being the first woman chairing the International Coastal Symposium – unconscious bias and microagressions.
By Associate Professor Ana Vila Concejo It was 2013 when A/Prof. Peter Cowell and I, both at the University of Sydney, decided that hosting the International Coastal Symposium in Sydney would be a good idea. I was pregnant at the time with my second son. Now my son can count to 10 in two languages, […]
Nadia is a Professor at Bordeaux University (France) where she is in charge of the Master program in Marine Sciences. Her primary interest when she started working on nearshore processes was on wave transformation in the surfzone on sandy beaches. Her research interest is now focusing on surfzone and swash dynamics, beach morphodynamics and shoreline […]
Amaia is an early career researcher at the Institute of Oceanographic Research at the University of Baja California, Mexico. Amaia’s main topic of interest is morphodynamics and hydrodynamics on gravel and sandy beaches with a focus on beach erosion and recovery at storm-driven, seasonal and annual time scales. Her work has taken Amaia to carry out field work […]
All International Coastal Symposium participants are invited to the official launch.
Hannah is an early career researcher at the University of Newcastle. Hannah’s interests span a wide range of topics in coastal science. Her main topic of interest is hydrodynamics and morphodynamics on sandy beaches with a focus on the surf and swash zones. This work has taken Hannah to beaches throughout Australia, Denmark, and the […]
Growing up on an island in southern Brazil ignited Dr Graziela Miot da Silva’s passion for the sea and the coast. She is a coastal geomorphologist and oceanographer, with experience and research interests on surfzone dynamics and sediment transport, beach morphodynamics and sedimentology, aeolian sediment transport, and climate change impacts on coastal environments. She joined […]
Lu has researched coastal processes at scales relevant to coastal management applications in Brazil, the USA and the UK. When she moved from Brazil to the UK in 2006, her research focus shifted from shoreline changes along sandy coasts to impacts of coastal management interventions in a range of coastal typologies. More recently, her work […]
