Michael Itzkin, Ph.D.

Michael Itzkin is a Research Geologist and Mendenhall Postdoctoral Fellow at the St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center. 

I joined the USGS in 2021 as a postdoctoral fellow where I use numerical modeling, remote sensing data, and machine learning tools to understand how beaches and dunes evolve over time and as a result of extreme water levels. I also use these models to assess new ways to predict and validate total water level forecasts.
