  • About me

    Passionate, driven and genuinely committed in managing and delivering environmental hydraulics consultancy and research projects with large numerical modelling components. Sébastien has over 17 year experience in Europe (with HR Wallingford from early 1997 till 2001 and back since late 2008) and in North America (with the Canadian Hydraulics Centre between 2001 and 2008).

    Sébastien is a proven team leader valuing most efficient use of the personnel he relies on. For almost 7 years, at the head of the Environmental Hydraulics Group at the Canadian Hydraulics Centre he formulated and followed through business plans. Since at HR Wallingford, he wrote the last 2D/3D flow modelling company research strategy, and led the resulting project implementation and delivery.

    Sébastien is a keen business developer valuing face-to-face contacts. He is experienced in authoring and negotiating licensing terms, high-level memorandum of understanding and joint commercial agreements both in French and English. He has organised international workshops and held booths at national and international conferences. He fosters strong relationships with clients, partners and peer organisations.

    Sébastien has a strong track record of managing and working on challenging projects, for which numerical modelling is critical and outside the norm, yet valuing delivery to a high quality standard, on time and within budget.

    Sébastien has a precise knowledge of the capabilities and restrictions of the numerical modelling tools at use, and consequently of the risks of project specific developments and modelling challenges, valuing a no-surprise relationship with clients. He has been and remains a lead developer of the numerical solvers he uses and of their applications to environmental hydraulics studies.

    Finally, Sébastien has strong personal organisational skills valuing self-motivated discipline. On his own time, he managed the completion of a PhD degree entitled "Stratified Shallow Flow Modelling" with the UK’s Open University.
