About Associate Professor Amin Chabchoub

Waves dynamics and related instabilities, that might be the origin of extreme events, occur in almost every natural environment (air, earth, water, etc).

The hydrodynamics of waves is one of the oldest sciences and yet keeps revealing new secrets, particularly when it comes to extreme wave formation that occurs either in offshore or coastal zones. Associate Professor Amin Chabchoub's research aims to understand, model, control and predict the formation of extreme events in the ocean either in offshore or coastal areas. One of the main objectives is to develop an accurate short-term forecast tool to avoid impact either on ships and offshore platforms or on the beach.
