I am a coastal modeler, with a keen interest in learning more about practical aspects of coastal processes, numerical modeling, and hazard & management. My research objective is to develop a framework to assess the effect of climate change on nearshore processes and coastal morphology under changing climate scenarios. The studies used the projected climate rather than the past data in planning for the regional coastal ecosystem to assess the future coastal vulnerability. I have been in hands-on coastal modeling since 2013. At Oregon State University, I am working with Cascadia CoPes hub toward solving chronic coastal hazards such as erosion and flooding and analyzing community adaptive capacity using the Envision model.
