Prof. M. Ghidaoui, born in Tunisia, received BASc, MASc and PhD all in Civil Engineering from the University of Toronto, Canada, in 1989, 1991 and 1993, respectively. Since July 1993, he has been with the Department of Civil Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), where he is now a Chair Professor.

He has spent his sabbatical leave at the Department of Civil Engineering, University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign, USA and the Department of Civil Engineering, University of Canterbury, NZ. In 2006 he was a Visiting Erskine Fellow at the University of Canterbury, NZ. He held major offices and positions in learned societies. He served two terms as the chairperson of the IAHR Hong Kong Chapter and was one of its founders. He is a member of IAHR and American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). He was the Chair of IAHR's technical committee on Fluid Mechanics. He is a full member of IAHR and a full member of ASCE. 

He is the Chief Editor of the Journal of Hydraulic Research (Taylor & Francis), tone of the flagship journals of IAHR.

Prof. Jochen Aberle

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jochen Aberle took over the professorship "Hydraulic engineering and water morphology" and head of the hydraulic engineering department at the Leichtweiß Institute for Hydraulic Engineering on 1 August 2017. He studied civil engineering with a specialization in hydraulic engineering in Karlsruhe and received his doctorate in 2000 from the University of Karlsruhe (TH) on the topic "Investigation of the roughness structure to determine the flow resistance in mountain streams under clear water runoff".

After two years of post-doc work in New Zealand at the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA), he worked from 2003 to 2012 as a research assistant at the Leichtweiß-Institut für Wasserbau at the TU Braunschweig. In 2012 he received a call to the Norges teknisk-naturvitenskapelige universitet (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway, which he left back in 2017 for a full professorship at Technische Universität Braunschweig

He is Associate Editor of Journal of Hydraulic Research (Taylor & Francis), one of the flagship journals of IAHR.
