Dr Laurent G. Courty
Postdoctoral Research Associate
My work is broadly aimed at providing tools and insights that could help engineers and practitioners in the field of flood management. I am specifically working on numerical flood modelling, with a focus on the actual computer models, their integration with Geographical Information Systems (GIS), and the role of input data (elevation, rainfall etc.).
