Stefan Felder

Senior Lecturer

I am a Senior Lecturer in hydraulic engineering and applied fluid mechanics in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering. I hold a Dipl.-Ing. from RWTH Aachen University, Germany and a PhD in Hydraulic Engineering from the University of Queensland. I joined UNSW in 2014 and established the hydraulic engineering research group at the UNSW Water Research Laboratory. I explore advanced experimental methods in the laboratory and at full-scale to resolve applied and fundamental research challenges in hydraulic engineering including air-water flow phenomena, optimisation of water engineering infrastructure for flow conveyance, fish passage and environmental flows. 
I have successfully graduated two PhD students to completion and supervise currently four further PhD students. I have a strong track record of publishing in high-ranking journals comprising more than 30 journal papers and more than 40 peer-reviewed conference papers. I have been a chief investigator in a number of fundamental and applied research grants totaling more than $2.2M. I am a member of the leadership team of the IAHR hydraulics structures committee and a member in Engineers Australia's Sydney Water Panel. I have been member of the organization and scientific committees of a number of national and international conferences including the IAHR World Congress and the Hydraulics in Water Engineering conferences of Engineers Australia.
