​​I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Univ. of Washington. Before this I was a postdoctoral scholar in the Integrative Oceanography Division at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego. I conducted my doctoral research in the Coastal Processes and Sediment Dynamics lab at the Earth and Ocean Sciences department of the University of South Carolina, Columbia.

My broad research interest is in Coastal Physical Oceanography with focus on surf zone and inner-shelf processes, wave-current interaction and sediment transport. I use a combination of field observations and suite of numerical models to conduct research.
