Assistant Professor
College of Engineering

University of Georgia

Unsteady and uncertain hydrologic and hydraulic systems, water resource management, floodplain delineation and analysis, analysis of reliability and interdependence in infrastructure systems, smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH)

Issues of Interest:
Quantifying the hydrologic and hydraulic characteristics, social vulnerability and infrastructure sustainability in coastal environments, identifying environmental impacts on urban systems and water resources, developing water resource management decision aids for the assessment and planning of water resources, development of next generation numerical models for predicting hurricane surge development and propagation onto shore

Current Projects:
Software development for the estimation of hurricane wind fields and storm surge

Georgia coastline, Gulf of Mexico coastline
