Broekema, Y.B. (Yorick)
Yorick was born in Zaandam in 1991. He started studying Civil Engineering in 2009 and completed hisMaster of Science in Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management in 2015. This Master was a joint degree between Delft University of Technology and the National University of Singapore. His MSc thesis was on cross-shore sorting processes in the surfzone for natural and nourished beaches. During his thesis he came to the conclusion that he enjoys doing research, making it a logical choice to start a PhD track.
In Yorick's PhD project the focus will be on (3D) hydrodynamics and turbulence at the Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier with relation to the large scour observed there.
