Stuart Pearson is a coastal engineering PhD candidate/soon-to-be postdoctoral researcher at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and consultant/researcher at Deltares, both located in Delft, the Netherlands. He received his MSc in Coastal and Marine Engineering & Management jointly from TU Delft, the University of Southampton (UK), and the Norwegian University of Science & Technology (NTNU). Originally hailing from Canada, he grew up on the shores of the Great Lakes and completed his BASc in Civil Engineering at the University of Waterloo. He also worked for several years as a coastal engineering consultant at Baird & Associates in Oakville, Ontario. Today his research focuses on understanding how waves and tides move sand around on our coasts, so that we can better manage flooding and erosion in the face of sea level rise and climate change.
