Personal profile

Research Interests

Rivers; Erosion; Geomorphology; Complex systems; Sediment transport; Non-linear dynamics

Biography

Marco obtained an MSc degree from the University of Leuven (Belgium) and a PhD from Southampton University (UK). He has worked as a post-doctoral researcher at Aberystwyth University (UK), and was an associate professor at the University of Western Ontario (Canada) before becoming a Reader at Coventry University (UK).

His earlier research looked at simulation of gully erosion, river bank erosion and river meandering. More recently, Marco has been actively involved in the development of the CAESAR landscape evolution model, which he has used to investigate the nature of non-linear dynamics of catchment sediment yield. Currently, his research is focussing on geomorphic impacts of flooding and on the interactions and feedbacks between geomorphological processes and ecological processes in river floodplains. He is also incorporating recent developments in parallel computing in his new simulation models.

Marco’s research has been published in numerous international peer-reviewed journals.

Area of Expertise:

Fluvial geomorphology, sediment transport, computer simulation, cellular automata

Vision Statement

My main research interest is in the field of computational geomorphology, i.e. the development and application of numerical models to simulate geomorphological landscape evolution at various scales. I am particularly interested in applying numerical models to understand the interactions and feedbacks between geomorphological, hydrological and ecological processes, and in predicting the impact of environmental change on the geomorphological and ecological dynamics of the landscape.

I am happy to consider applications from highly motivated and exceptionally talented students to undertake PhD research in computational geomorphology.
