Timothy Tiggeloven is a PhD researcher in the department of Water & Climate Risk of the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM) at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam since September 2017. He completed his BSc degree in Earth Science & Economics with an extra minor in programming and MSc degree in Hydrology at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. During this period, Timothy developed a broad interest in flood risk management and climate change adaptation. His MSc thesis was partially conducted in Kitui, Kenya where he focused on water harvesting and adaptation to climate change.
Timothy’s PhD research focuses on Flood risk assessment in the coastal zone on the global scale. During this research Timothy will design a model scheme to assess impacts of adaptation strategies on coastal flood risk, such as natural coastal defences, risk transference and sea dikes. This project aims to assess optimal adaptation strategies for coastal flood risk in response to climate change.
