David R. Fuhrman is Professor of Coastal Dynamics at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Department of Mechanical Engineering. His research focuses on many aspects of coastal engineering, including: surf zone and coastal dynamics, sediment transport, coastal morphology, scour, turbulence modelling, wave boundary layers, and nonlinear wave hydrodynamics. He has published approximately 50 peer-reviewed articles in leading international journals on such topics. He presently serves on the Editorial Boards for three leading international journals: (1) ASCE J. Waterways, Port, Coastal and Ocean Engineering; (2) Coastal Engineering; and (3) Applied Ocean Research. His research on turbulence modelling is featured in the latest v1912 release of the popular CFD software OpenFOAM. He is co-author of the textbook: Turbulence in Coastal and Civil Engineering.
