a bit about me:

Welcome!  I am a computational mathematician with expertise in the development and application of numerical hydrodynamic models for coastal hazards.  I specialize in hurricane storm surge modeling, including the investigation of climate change impacts on coastal flood risk and data assimilation methods for state and parameter estimation.  I have recently expanded my work to include wave energy conversion and its impacts on coastal erosion. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Emory University, and was awarded the Early-Career Research Fellowship by the National Academies of Sciences Gulf Research Program and the Early Career Faculty Innovator Award by the National Center for Atmospheric Research. I am a fierce advocate of accessible, inclusive science and education of all people.
