Associate Professor Astrid Blom

Astrid Blom is an associate professor in the Hydraulic Engineering department of the Faculty Civil Engineering & Geosciences of Delft University of Technology, Netherlands. In her research, she focuses on changes in engineered river systems. In particular, she asks how anthropogenic modification and natural change affect the river equilibrium state regarding channel slope and bed surface grain size, as well as how the river responds with time to such change. She loves to develop conceptual and analytical models as tools to increase insight into the physics governing modern and/or historic river problems. She combines these models with analyses of field and lab data, and numerical modeling to extend physical understanding to engineering applications. She is motivated to increase diversity in engineering and science, and loves to work with and educate young researchers.
