Berry Gersonius (MSc in Civil Engineering) joined UNESCO-IHE in March 2006 as a lecturer in Sustainable Urban Infrastructure Systems. The scope of his work covers education and supervision of MSc research in the field of flood resilience of urban systems as well as asset management. Main research areas are the operationalization of resilience in context of urban flooding and the development of a whole life cycle cost model for water related infrastructure. Besides that he is involved with an international umbrella project on Urban Flood Management. In addition, he is working in the dissemination of the SWITCH project, which involves a consortium of 32 organisations from 13 countries under coordination of UNESCO-IHE in partnership with the European Union - DG Research.
