Please note that I am now located at the Pacific Coastal & Marine Science Center in Santa Cruz, CA.
I'm a coastal oceanographer currently serving as a Mendenhall Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the USGS Woods Hole Coastal & Marine Science Center in Woods Hole, MA. I received my Ph.D. in Oceanography (Marine Geology & Geophysics) from the University of Washington in Seattle. My M.S.E. is in Civil & Environmental Engineering, also from the UW. Previously, I was a hydrologist at the USGS’s National Research Program in Reston, VA.
Generally, I am interested in the sediment transport and morphology of coastal and riverine systems.
A key aspect of my current research is the interaction between waves, vegetation, and sediment transport in a variety of coastal environments. This work is done primarily as part of the Estuarine Physical Response to Storms and Estuarine Processes, Hazards, and Ecosystems projects.
