UNSW, Sydney

Stefan Felder is a Senior Lecturer in hydraulic engineering and applied fluid mechanics at the Water Research Laboratory within the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, UNSW Sydney. He holds a Dipl.-Ing. from RWTH Aachen University, Germany and a PhD from the University of Queensland for which he was awarded the Dean’s award for Research Higher Degree Excellence. He joined UNSW in 2014, having established and leading the hydraulic engineering research group at WRL. He explores advanced experimental methods in the laboratory and at full-scale to resolve applied and fundamental research challenges in water engineering, hydraulic engineering and environmental fluid mechanics to improve hydraulic designs, flow performances and environmental flows in urban stormwater, flow conveyance, wastewater and irrigation systems. More recently his research further diversified into fishways and impacts of climate change on the hydrodynamics of estuarine systems.
