Thijs van Kessel obtained a PhD at the Civil Engineering Department of Delft University of Technology with a dissertation on fluid mud transport in 1997. Since then, he has been employed at Deltares and has been involved in many studies on cohesive sediment transport, ranging from dilute suspensions to consolidated soils. In a hydrodynamic-oriented world, he is known as an ambassador for the importance of cohesive sediment properties and waterbed exchange on turbidity levels and residual transport of fines.
