Professional Background:

Adjunct Professor, June 2009—Present, Georgia Institute of Technology, School of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
Research Assistant Professor (Post-Doctoral), Jan. 2001—Oct 2003,  Old Dominion University, Center for Coastal Physical Oceanography

Research Interests:

Observational physical oceanography; dynamics of episodic, seasonal, and mean processes accounting for the transport of water and the material it contains through different ocean regimes, from open ocean to shelf settings. Boundary current variability, effects on coastal circulation effects, wind and buoyancy effects at subtidal, tidal, and super-tidal temporal scales. In most cases, I have endeavored to select problems that have cross-disciplinary significance.
