1 July 2016 Professor Marcel Stive and Lindino Benedet at TU Delft, Delft, The Netherlands


Marcel Stive and Lindino Benedet at the Ph.D. defense ceremony of now Dr. Benedet on April 2016 at TU Delft, Delft, The Netherlands. Professor Stive recently announced his retirement and is stepping down from his position as the Head of the Hydraulic Engineering Department of TU Delft. Prof. Stive, one of the most prominent coastal engineers of our time, is also a JCR Board Member and a Trustee of the Coastal Research and Education Foundation (CERF). Prof. Stive provided invaluable contributions to the field of coastal engineering through his innovative research, education, and mentoring. Recent achievements of Prof. Stive include the 2013 Knighthood in the order of the Durch Lion, The Netherlands, the 2015 International Coastal Engineering award by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and the 2015 Coastal Award at the Coastal Sediments Conference in San Diego. We wish Prof. Stive a plentiful post-retirement life, and we hope that he will continue to contribute to the field of Coastal Engineering through selected research projects in this new phase of his career. His work will also continue to be carried on by his many Ph.D. students who now occupy prominent positions in academia, government, and the industry. Dr. Benedet, who is Marcel's 28th Ph.D. student, defended his Ph.D. at TU Delft on April 5, 2016. His thesis was entitled “Processes Controlling Beach Nourishment Performance at Delray Beach,” and it provided many insights into processing beach changes due to abrupt offshore bathymetric anomalies. Dr. Benedet is also a Member of the Editorial Board of the JCR and a former M.Sc. student of JCR Editor-in-Chief and CERF President, Dr. Charles W. Finkl. Dr. Benedet now serves as the Director of the Coastal & Maritime Services Business Line for CB&I where he leads a team of 200+ professionals dedicated to coastal work. Parallel to his career in the consulting arena, Dr. Benedet continues to conduct research through collaborations with his former supervisors and colleagues from academia and to consult and mentor M.Sc. students.
