Nils Goseberg's Biography

Nils Goseberg is a Professor for Coastal Engineering and Maritime Constructions at Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany, starting in the beginning of 2018. His research group is part of Leichtweiß-Institute for Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources which looks back on a long tradition in the field. Professor Goseberg's group operates a variety of experimental facilities among which a current-wave basin, a 80 m long twin-flume, a long wave flume (with Ludwig-Franzius-Institute) and most notably, the Large Wave Flume at the Coastal Research Center, Hannover, Germany where Prof. Goseberg is a co-director.

His research interests are in the field of experimental and numerical modeling of coastal, hydraulic, estuarine, and marine engineering problems. He specifically addresses near-shore tsunami and (long) wave dynamics, assessment of water-borne flood risks, instationary free surface flows as well as aquaculture applications in open ocean conditions. From his research, three (3) contributions to books, 18 journal papers and 22 peer-reviewed conference papers, another 15 conference manuscripts and 14 technical reports were published.

In the beginning of 2014 he won a prestigious Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship that enabled him to intensely collaborate with the University of Ottawa, Canada. In 2011, he was awarded with the Erich-Lackner-Award from German Port Technology Association - HTG (professional association of consultants, researchers, business people in hydraulic, port and coastal engineering) in recognition of his outstanding PhD thesis. After finishing his studies of Civil Engineering, he got Hubert-Engels-medal of Technical University of Dresden, Germany for an outstanding master thesis.

He received a German diploma of Technical University of Dresden, Germany (2007) and got his PhD at Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz University Hannover, Germany (2011). In August 2017, he sucessfully defended his habilitation (venia legendi) in Hydraulic and Coastal Engineering at the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz University Hannover, Germany. His research is currently supported by Federal Ministry of Education and Research, German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and Research Executive Agency (REA) of European Union (EU).
