Clementine Chirol is a PhD student in coastal processes within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.

After completing a MSc degree in Geosciences at the Pierre et Marie Curie University in Paris, she specialised in the morphology and sedimentology of coastal environments.

Her current work examines the evolution of creek networks in managed realignment schemes in order to improve future design. The monitoring is done both through the interpretation of LiDAR data from the Environment Agency, and from bimonthly field surveys.

Her main study site is the Steart coastal management project in Somerset, UK, where an artificial creek network has been dug as part of a scheme to open the area to tidal flooding in September 2014.
