Professor Coastal Engineering and Maritime Constructions, Institute for Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources, Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany
Understanding the dynamic open ocean environment through wave basin technology
Presented with Arndt Hildebrand
Professor Nils Goseberg received his PhD at Leibniz University Hannover (LUH), Germany in 2011, and successfully gained his habilitation thesis (venia legendi) in Hydraulic and Coastal Engineering also at LUH Hannover, Germany (2017). From 2014-2017, a Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship of the European Union enabled an extended research stay in collaboration with the University of Ottawa (UO), Canada, working as a visiting professor at the Faculty of Engineering, UO.
Nils’ research interests are experimental and numerical modelling of coastal, hydraulic, estuarine, and ocean engineering problems. He specifically addresses near-shore tsunami and (long) wave dynamics, assessment of water-borne flood risks, transient free surface flows, and aquaculture applications in open ocean conditions.
