Research interests

Understanding the physical processes that occur in coastal waters and how they interact as well as impact ecosystems, infrastructure, and coastlines enables us to to develop strategies to minimize impact, reduce response cost and increase resilience of ecosystems, offshore infrastructure and coastal communities.

I am a coastal engineer and oceanographer working on coastal oceanographic impacts, the transport of sediment and particulate matter as well as changes to coastlines.

Current projects

Sediment transport processes, erosion and biodiversity status at Flic-en-Flac region (Mauritius)

Waiakane Reef Transport Project

Combining new methods to understand sediment transport across fringing coral reefs.

Mega Reef

Understanding the transport of sediment across fringing coral reefs.

In situ oxygen dynamics in seagrass

How waves and currents affect oxygen in the rhizome of Posidonia sinuosa (seagrass).
