Bruno Tassin

Bruno Tassin is a senior scientist, Professor in urban hydrology at Ecole des ponts ParisTech in LEESU (Water, Environment, and Urban Systems laboratory). He is also in charge of a Master Programme : “Hydrosystems and Water management” organised by Ecole des ponts ParisTech, Paris-Est Créteil University and Paris-Diderot University. He is graduated from Ecole des ponts in civil engineering and prepared a PhD on the mathematical modelling of the water quality of the lake of Geneva.

During the first 15 years or is research activities he worked on the physical and biogeochemical monitoring and modelling of lakes recovering from eutrophication, especially on Lake Bourget (France). He developed multiscale approaches from the turbulence scale to basin wide scale in order to analyse the interactions between the physical and the biogeochemical behaviour of large lakes, especially algal blooms. This approaches has been transferred to meromictic lakes, like Lake Pavin (France). lakes.

After his habilitation diploma (2003), his research activities moved to the analysis of water quality in urban environments and its interaction with new water management approaches transferring the methodology developed on lakes ecosystems to urban hydrosystems. His interests focus particularly on the modelling of the water quality or urban runoff, the analysis of sources and fluxes in complex environment of micropollutants, the basin-scale consequences of the development of Best Management Practices for runoff control and the historical analysis of urban pollution on using sediment cores.

In 2013, he started developing research activities on microplastics in urban environments, from atmospheric fallouts to receiving systems.
