I am a Junior Group Leader (SNSF Ambizione Fellow) at ETH Zurich and a Research Affiliate at MIT. My research aims to reach a fundamental understanding of transport processes in fluvial systems to make a positive impact on the environment. I integrate physical modeling and field observations to study the interaction of flow with (in)organic matter in rivers. I seek to develop models of physical processes in rivers to improve the management of natural resources and the design of hydraulic structures. My previous and present research topics include hydrodynamic and morphologic processes associated with nature-based solutions, design of river infrastructures in the presence of wood, sediment, and plastics , wood transport in rivers, and objective quantification of residual flow to inform hydropower efforts.
