Research on heavily modified large European rivers (Danube, Rhine): study of their reference conditions, analysis of their ecological deficit, existing constraints for restoration and proposal of processed-based restoration actions.


  • Morphodynamic processes and riverine habitat evolution
  • Reference conditions for heavily modified large European rivers
  • Pressures and ecological deficit of rivers and their floodplains
  • Process-based river restoration and rehabilitation
  • Ecosystem services and sustainable river restoration


Ph.D. Thesis: Process-based river restoration for heavily modified sections of European large rivers.
