- The student will be involved in the development of a cellular model of river avulsion in a simple coding environment such as matlab. The idea is to improve our understanding of the stratigraphic complexity in fluvial deltas.
- The student will be involved in the development of a numerical solution for a 1D moving boundary problem to better understand the response of fluvial deltas to sea-level variations. A simple coding environment such as matlab will be used. The idea is to gain some insight about the response of fluvial deltas to sea-level variations.
Assistantship: The research assistantship will include stipend support during the summer months.
Qualifications: Applicants should have coding experience, as well as strong analytical and quantitative skills. Graduate and undergraduate students in computer sciences, mathematics or physics are encouraged to apply.
