General Information

I investigate coastal air/sea interactions around cities and mountains. I utilize high-resolution (< 5km) two-way coupled ocean/atmosphere models and observations from targeted field campaigns around the globe. My work has direct societal impact in the realms of contaminant transport, heat wave projections, and coastal and river flood prediction. My research also contributes to the understanding and development of resilience and sustainability in coastal environments.

I am the physical oceanography councilor for The Oceanography Society and a member of the Board of the Waterfront Alliance (representing over 900 groups with a stake in the NY/NJ waterfront), and vice-chair of the policy committee. I am part of the international GODAE Coastal Ocean and Shelf Seas Task Team and am a member of the 2014-2016 National Research Council committee “Developing a U.S. Research Agenda to Advance Subseasonal to Seasonal Forecasting” of the ocean and atmosphere. I have served on program committees for the AMS Coastal Environments (chair), Gordon Research Conference on Coastal Ocean Modeling, the International Waterside Security Conference, and co-chaired the Ocean Sciences Meeting (2010) and Maritime Risk Symposium (2015).
