I am earning my M.S. in civil/environmental engineering here at UGA. Originally I am from Cleveland, OH and completed my undergraduate degree at Notre Dame, so I am new to the region! I found a great opportunity to pursue coastal research here and I did not hesitate to make the move to Athens. I hope to broaden my education and research abilities so that I can face the engineering challenges such as sea level rise, flooding, and storm events. 


  • Coastal storms and flood events
  • Morphological changes
  • Hydrodynamic modeling
