Dr Heide Friedrich

Senior Lecturer
The University of Auckland

Dr Fridrich’s research focuses mainly on processes taking place in water-worked environments, such as rivers: sediment movement/transport; physical modelling; flow structure and ecohydraulics; and hydraulic structures. Several of her current projects strive to apply innovative analysis methodologies developed for turbulence studies into sediment transport research. In addition to using those traditional research methods, her specific interest and contribution to the research community over the last years is the use of advanced visualisation techniques to study underwater topography. In addition to mobile-boundary research, she is researching density flows.
