Borbála Széles


Research Interests


• Catchment hydrology
• Rainfall-runoff modelling
• Surface flow paths

Borbála is a civil engineer with a research interest focusing on catchment hydrology, especially on understanding and simulating rainfall-runoff processes in small experimental watersheds. She will be working in the HOAL, the Hydrological Open Air Laboratory in Petzenkirchen.


Key Facts


Borbála received her BSc degree in Hydraulic and Water Resources Engineering at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary, in 2014. In 2016, she obtained a Master’s degree in Infrastructural Engineering at the same university. Borbála got immersed in hydrology when she started her university studies in Hungary.
Borbála completed her Master’s thesis at the Vienna University of Technology, exploring the sensitivities of runoff to different rainfall-runoff generation mechanisms using a conceptual hydrological model in the HOAL. Since her graduation, she has also provided administrative support to the DK doctoral programme.
