River systems from a global to an infrastructure scale. Core topic areas are river hydrodynamics and the connectivity of rivers and floodplains, with strong links to geomorphology, hydrology and environmental engineering. Particularly motivated by traditionally data-scarce contexts where new low cost field methods, numerical modelling, remote sensing, and local knowledge can provide new insights and applications.

Interested in international water policies. Audrey works on water governance and management, and more particularly in poor countries where the lack of water and sanitation are responsible of political and social conflicts, and  is currently doing an internship with Dr. Oliver Fritsch on the European Water Initiative. This initiative was launched in 2002 in Johannesburg, and aims at improving water governance by adapting principles from the European Framework Directive into poor countries.
