Welcome! My name is Thomas Wahl. I am an Assistant Professor for Coastal Risks and Engineering at the University of Central Florida (UCF), where I am affiliated with the Civil, Environmental, and Construction Engineering Department and the Sustainable Coastal Systems Excellence Cluster. I obtained a Diploma (UNI) in 2007 and PhD (Dr.-Ing.) in 2012 in Civil Engineering at the University of Siegen in Germany. After a short postdoc with the interdisciplinary research center “Shaping the Future” at the University of Siegen I took a postdoc position at the College of Marine Science at the University of South Florida, supported by a fellowship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Prior to coming to UCF I was a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow of the European Union in Engineering and the Environment at the University of Southampton, UK.
