Welcome! We are a research group focused on understanding the role of fluid mechanics in environmental processes. We pursue a range of problems across different scales, from the transport of biotic and abiotic particles and their interactions with flow to nearshore hydrodynamics and wave-driven flows at coastlines. Our research has wide ranging applications related to improving environmental and industrial sustainability.
If you are interested in pursuing research opportunities in our group, please see the Join us page for openings and details on how to apply.
We hosted the YCSEC-A conference at UW-Madison Aug 10-12, 2023! It was a great success and congratulations to the student organisers and presentation award winners! YCSEC-A Conference: Advancing the coastal science and engineering communityAugust 13, 2023
