Depending on your interest, you will learn hands-on job skills for coastal modeling, coastal analysis, and machine learning applications.
We apply deep learning models to forecast coastal processes including wind waves, storm surges, and total water levels.
We study the fundamentals of breaking waves and the momentum and energy transfer from high-frequency waves to low-frequency nearshore circulation.
We study the propagation and inundation of tsunamis in the nearshore zone and tsunami-structure interaction.
We study the interaction between ocean waves with coastal structures to address challenges in the areas of renewable ocean energy and hazard mitigation.
We study coastal flooding due to storm surges and compound flooding caused by coastal and riverine floods.
We design coastal structures to support coastal resiliency threatened by climate change and sea-level rise.
