S.M.S. Alhaddad



Dr. ir. Said Alhaddad is an assistant professor of Offshore and Dredging Engineering at the Department of Marine and Transport Technology. His research interests reside in understanding the physical processes governing the interplay between underwater activities and environmental pressures, in particular the generated turbidity flows, which is of great relevance to address the challenges facing the subsea technology and to reduce the risk of unsustainable development.

Dr. ir. Alhaddad carried out his Postdoc in Deep Sea Mining at TU Delft. He was awarded the degree of doctor from the Department of Hydraulic Engineering, Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, TU Delft. His PhD work has focused on breaching flow slides and the associated turbidity currents. He holds an MSc in Coastal and Marine Engineering and Management from both TU Delft and Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
