Nina Stark

Nina received a Diploma (MSc) in Geophysics in 2007 from the Westphalian Wilhelms University of Muenster, Germany, and her PhD in Marine Geotechnics in 2011 from MARUM-Center for Marine and Environmental Sciences at the University of Bremen, Germany. She was a postdoctoral fellow in 2011 in the marine geotechnics group at MARUM and from 2012-2013, in the physical oceanography group at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada, before being appointed assistant professor in 2013 and associate professor in 2019 in the Charles E. Via, Jr., Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Virginia Tech. 

In August 2023, she joined the University of Florida’s Engineering School for Sustainable Infrastructure and Environment as associate professor. Her research focuses on coastal and marine geotechnics including instrument and method development, the geotechnical investigation of sediment dynamics, and the geotechnical investigation of subaquatic sediments with regards to climate change, extreme events, and naval and civil engineering applications.
