Damien Pham Van Bang, Ph.D.

– Research Habilitation, Engineering Sciences, Pierre et Marie Curie University (Paris 6, France)
– Ph.D. Civil and coastal engineering, Claude Bernard University (Lyon 1, France)
– M.Sc. Civil engineering, Claude Bernard University (Lyon 1, France)
– Degree in Civil engineering, École nationale des travaux publics de l’État (Lyon 1, France)

Background: Before joining INRS, Professor Pham Van Bang directed the Hydraulic and Environmental Risks Laboratory (LRHE), a component of CEREMA (Center for studies and expertise on risks, the environment, mobility and development) at the Saint-Venant Hydraulic Laboratory (LHSV) in France where he also worked for many years as a researcher. He was also an engineer at CETMEF (Center for Maritime and River Technical Studies) of the French Ministry of the Environment, Sustainable Development and Energy.


Jacob Stolle, Ph.D

– Ph.D. Génie civil, Université d’Ottawa (Canada) en cotutelle avec Technische Universität Braunschweig (Allemagne)
– M.ASc. Génie civil, Université d’Ottawa (Canada)
– B.Eng. Génie environnemental, Université de Guelph (Canada)


Jacob Stolle completed his Ph.D. focusing on the design of resilient coastal and riverine infrastructure in extreme flooding events, with an emphasis on the physical modelling of associated design conditions. His research interests include the application of physical and numerical modelling for the design of resilient coastal protection structures under challenging climatic conditions and hybrid physical-numerical modelling procedures for improving the understanding of coastal phenomena.
