Bio/Research

Dr. Nistor is an Associate Professor of Hydraulic and Coastal Engineering in the Department of Civil Engineering of the University of Ottawa and Vice-Dean Graduate Studies Faculty of Engineering. Dr. Nistor is a coastal and hydraulic engineer researching hazards associated with extreme hydrodynamic loading on infrastructure (wave forces on structures, dam failure phenomena, etc.). He is the Chair of the Hydrotechnical Division of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) and an Associate Editor of the Coastal Engineering Journal (JSCE) and of the Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering (CSCE). He is the winner of several research and teaching awards: 2010 Award of the Tsunami International Society, 2010 Excellence in Education Teaching Award of the University of Ottawa, 2009 John V. Marsh Teaching Award of the Faculty of Engineering, 2005 Ontario Ministry for Infrastructure Renewal. Dr. Nistor is currently the Chair of the Hydrotechnical Division of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) and a member of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Coastal Science and Engineering Association.

Dr. Nistor started his academic career in the Faculty of Hydrotechnical Engineering of the Technical University of Iasi, Romania. Following his doctoral studies in Yokohama National University, Japan, with a thesis dealing with numerical modeling of the hydrodynamic field and the sediment transport in coastal areas, he was awarded several postdoctoral fellowships (DAAD-Germany, NATO-Greece, AUF-Canada) and participated in several academic research programs (TEMPUS and SOCRATES) at universities in Europe (France, Germany, Greece, Italy, UK), Japan, and Canada in the fields of hydraulic and coastal engineering.

Prior to joining the University of Ottawa, Dr. Nistor spent several years as a design and consulting hydraulic engineer with AECOM-TECSULT Montreal, working on various international and Canadian projects related to dam engineering, coastal engineering, environmental engineering, as well as sanitation and water resources development.
