Personal profile

Personal information

Anaïs Couasnon is a PhD researcher at the department of Water and Climate Risk of the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM) since April 2017. She completed her MSc degree in Hydraulic Engineering at the TU Delft in the Netherlands where she gained advanced knowledge in probabilistic modelling and flood risk. Her MSc thesis focused on characterizing flood hazards in the US with the use of stochastic models (a non-parametric Bayesian Network model) based on openly available data.

Her PhD research is part of a VIDI project that aims to understand and model compound risk of river and coastal floods in global deltas and estuaries, under the supervision of Dr Philip Ward and Dr Hessel Winsemius. Anaïs will use statistical methods and models to assess the probability and impacts of coastal-river compound floods at the global scale.


Probabilistic modelling, multivariate dependence, flood risk.



2017: Master in Civil Engineering, Hydraulic Engineering, specialization in Water Management and Engineering. Technical University of Delft. The Netherlands

2010: Bachelor in Civil Engineering. McGill University. Canada.
