Executive Director

        ☎ Phone: +49-(0)711-677-3435      ☎ Cell: +49-(0)1511-533-63-11

Matthias Schneider earned his doctoral degree in civil engineering at the University of Stuttgart and then worked as a researcher under the professorial chair for Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources at the University of Stuttgart. His research interests were concentrated in the following areas: river engineering and river hydraulics, ecohydraulics, hydraulic engineering design (pipelines, barrages, hydropower stations), modeling (habitat simulations, 1- and 2D-hydraulics, dam stability), engineering hydrology and the analysis of water supply networks. He has more than twenty years experience in the design and management of water resources projects, which, among other things, attend to the environmental integrity of hydraulic engineering installations, the more natural development of watercourses and flood protection measures. He is instrumental in the development of the habitat simulation model CASiMiR. Dr. Schneider has been founding member and executive director at sje GmbH since 2001. Additionally, Dr. Schneider has a teaching assignment at the Institute for Modelling Hydraulic and Environmental Systems at the University of Stuttgart and takes tasks as lecturer at the Bauhaus Universitaet Weimar and the TU Dresden.

Dr.-Ing. Klaus Jorde

Director

After earning his doctoral degree in civil engineering at the University of Stuttgart, Klaus Jorde was a researcher and team leader for the Ecohydraulics work group under the professorial chair for Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources at the University of Stuttgart. His research interests were concentrated in the following areas: hydraulic engineering design, hydropower stations, river engineering, power production, engineering hydrology, hydraulics of watercourses, and ecohydraulics, wherein he also had teaching assignments in the programs for civil engineering, environmental engineering and Water Resources Engineering and Management (WAREM). In addition to coordinating and working on numerous projects where he provides expertise, Dr. Jorde is a member of several national and international committees and the leader of ATV-DVWK's committee on "Ecohydraulics." Dr. Jorde has been director at sje GmbH since 2001.

Dr.-Ing. Iana Kopecki

Model Development, Ecohydraulic Modelling, Geoinformatics

        ☎ Phone: +49-(0)711-677-3435      ☎ Mobil: +49-(0)176-48-25-1343

Ianina Kopecki studied civil engineering in St. Petersburg (Russia) and then completed the internationally oriented Master of Science program, WAREM, at the University of Stuttgart. Before joining sje she was a research assistant at the University of Stuttgart. She specializes in the areas of hydrodynamic simulations, habitat modeling and GIS applications. Furthermore, she is instrumental in the programming and further development of the habitat simulation model CASiMiR.

Marcus Mannfeld, Dipl.-Ing.

Geoinformatics, Modelling

        ☎ Telefon: +49-(0)711-6569-6440

Marcus Mannfeld has formal training as an electronics technican for IT systems, and completed his studies in environmental protection at the Fachhochschule Bingen as well as environmental planning and engineering ecology at the Technische Universität München. His study focus was on the topics of limnology, modelling and restoration. During his independent study and thesis works he implemented applications for hydroacoustic modelling and measurements of freshwater mussel populations. In addition to his studies, he actively worked as a certified Eurpean Scientific Diver (ESD). Mr. Mannfeld brings his professional expertise to the SJE team in the fields of geoinformatics, mathematical modelling, field measurements and IT-management.
