Understanding the physical processes that occur in coastal waters and how they interact as well as impact ecosystems, infrastructure, and coastlines enables us to to develop strategies to minimize impact, reduce response cost and increase resilience of ecosystems, offshore infrastructure and coastal communities.

I am a coastal engineer and oceanographer working on coastal oceanographic impacts, the transport of sediment and particulate matter as well as changes to coastlines.
