Research Statement

I’m a graduate student in Physical Oceanography in the MIT-WHOI Joint Program. I study nearshore hydrodynamics and sediment transport, primarily using field observations. My research interests include rip current hydrodynamics and rip channel migration, the evolution of steep bathymetric features, and methods for estimating surfzone bathymetry.
