Steve Mitchell, University of Portsmouth, UK

Steve Mitchell, is a lecturer in civil engineering hydraulics at the University of Portsmouth, UK. Originally graduating with a PhD in estuarine processes at the University of Birmingham, he then spent some time designing coastal schemes for the consultancy firm Halcrow before undertaking lecturing posts at Universities in Brighton and London. He is a Chartered Engineer and Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). His research experience covers field work, data analysis and numerical modelling of civil engineering fluid mechanics and hydraulics, water quality and sediment transport processes. As an active researcher in estuarine sediment transport processes including advancing understanding of the turbidity maximum and temporal and spatial evolution of vertical salinity gradients. Having worked in a number of countries in his career on coastal sedimentation and erosion problems his more recent focus is on processes that occur over individual tidal cycles (R. Kaipara, N Zealand) and seasonal and annual cycles (R. Thames, UK). He is on the council of the Estuarine Coastal Sciences Association as well as being a Chief Editor of the Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science journal.
