Congratulations to Dr Kristen Splinter who has recently been promoted to Associate Professor!
With over 20 years of applied and fundamental research experience, Kristen is an expert in Coastal Engineering and a highly valued member of the engineering community. Kristen has a passion for training the next generation of coastal engineers and frequently brings relevant and real engineering projects into her classroom. She supervises undergraduate Honours thesis, Masters and PhD students on topics including beach erosion and recovery, large scale coastal change, human safety on floating structures, design of coastal structures in reef environments and reef hydrodynamics.
Along with her team of students and researchers, Kristen is pioneering the use of remote sensing in the coastal zone, including lidar, satellites and cameras within Australia to better understand how our coastlines change at timescales of days to decades.
