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.
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.
Sara Hartke joins the group as a new graduate student to be co-advised by Dr. Pujara in Civil and Environmental Engineering and Dr. Franck in Engineering Physics. Welcome Sara!August 20, 2021
