I am a coastal modeler, with a keen interest to learn 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 am into hand-on coastal modeling since 2013. In Oregon State University, I am working with Cascadia CoPes hub towards solving coastal change hazards and analyzing community adaptive capacity using Envision model.
