Biography

Biography

    Professor Gerd Masselink is a Professor in Coastal Geomorphology at the University of Plymouth (UoP) with >150 refereed journal publications (GoogleScholar h-index = 68) and over 25 years' experience in collecting and analysing coastal and nearshore morphodynamic data.
     
    Gerd did his MSc degree in Physical Geography at Utrecht University (the Netherlands) from 1984 to 1990, and completed his PhD in Marine Science at Sydney University (Australia) in 1994. After a 4-year postdoc at the University of Western Australia, he started as a Lecturer at Loughborough University (UK) in 1998.
     
    Since 2005, he has been working at the University of Plymouth, first in the School of Geography, then in the School of Marine Science and Engineering, and currently in the School of Biological and Marine Sciences.
     
    Gerd has been (or is) a PI/CI on 15 UK research council funded projects, all involving shoreline dynamics and nearshore sediment transport processes, and has been (or is) involved with supervision of 25 coastal PhD students. Currently, Masselink is: (1) Plymouth lead on the EA-funded Making Space for Sand project (£0.8M); and (2) PI on the UKRI-funded ARISE project (£2.8M), investigating the impact of sea-level rise on atoll islands. He was the chair of the organising committee of the 2013 International Coastal Symposium (hosted at the University of Plymouth), is the author of the A-level text book Changing Coastal Landscapes and the undergraduate textbook Introduction to Coastal Processes and Geomorphology, and is editor of the textbook Coastal Environments and Global Change. Apart from his academic role, Gerd has been Associate Head of School (Marine Science) and Associate Head of School (Research), and is currently co-director of the consulting group CMAR - Coastal Marine Applied Research. He is a member of the Coastal Processes Research Group (CPRG) .
