Marcelo Ruiz is a Civil Enginner, PhD student at University of Padova and an early stage researcher in the RIBES network. His work is focusing on the analysis of fish behavior driven by hydrodynamic variables at hydraulic structures. Here he writes about his background and and his place in RIBES.
Philip Ericsson is a PhD-student at University of Southampton and a RIBES Early Stage Researcher. His research project is focused on how fish behavior and physiology respond to varying acoustic and hydrodynamic conditions. Here he writes about his background, including work on fish in both United States and Sweden, and his current place in RIBES.
Usama Ashraf is a PhD-student at Politecnico di Torino, and one of the early stage researchers in the RIBES network. He is an engineer working on fish kinematics to provide explanations and innovative solutions for the fish passage design zeroing in on upstream migrating freshwater fishes. Here he writes about how he ended up in the RIBES project and some of his place and plans within it.
Sophia Schumann is a RIBES early stage researcher and a PhD-student at the University of Padova. In her research project, she will establish physiological indicators, which provide information about the stress response in riverine fish.
We are happy to announce that Luocheng Wu has joined the RIBES European Training Network as one of our ESR early stage researchers (ESR) this week. He is the 15th and last ESR recruited to the Training Network.
Henry Hansen is an early stage researcher within the RIBES network and is pursuing a PhD at Karlstad University, Sweden. He will be using Bayesian statistical methods to develop models that link different river management scenarios to outcomes affecting fish communities and the habitat they depend on. Here he tells more about his background and the research group he is part of.
Ali Hassan Khan was the first Early Stage Researcher recruited to the RIBES European Training Network. He works at the centre for Biorobotics in the Environmental Sensing and Intelligence group at Tallin Technical University, and his objectives are to create high-resolution CFD models of full-scale replicas of eight different fish species. These models will aid in investigating how different fish body shapes impact their sensing extent. Here he tells about his background, and his research and expectations within RIBES.
We’re happy to greet Miriam Castagna welcome to the RIBES European Training Network. Last week, she has joined RIBES as one of our early stage researchers. She is hosted by University of Aberdeen and will study hydrodynamics of swimming fish with a focus on fundamental aspects of flow-fish interactions.
We’re happy to greet Philip Ericsson welcome to the RIBES European Training Network. Last week, he joined the network as one of our early stage researchers. He is hosted by University of Southampton, UK, and will work on quantification of fish responses to multimodal signals, including acoustics and hydrodynamics.
