Mr Robin Morelissen has about 20 years’ experience in multi-scale numerical modelling of coastal hydrodynamics, dredge plumes and outfalls and is working at Deltares, The Netherlands. Within Deltares, Mr Morelissen is Regional Coordinator Middle East and also works on Business Innovation and on Collaborative Innovation, such as in the Gulf Model Community. Furthermore, Mr Morelissen is past-Chair of the IAHR/IWA Marine Outfall Committee. His technical work focuses on the coupling of near field and far field models used in recirculation studies for (seawater) intakes and outfalls and dredge plume studies and on advanced modelling techniques used in engineering practice. Mr Morelissen had a key role as a project manager in (multi-disciplinary) projects concerning studies for new reclamations, flushing studies, dredging (sediment dispersion) impact studies and Power and Desalination recirculation studies, mainly in the Middle East Gulf and Red Sea region.
