My focus is on numerical methods for high resolution computational fluid dynamic simulations as applied to eddy-resolving coastal ocean modeling with applications to San Francisco Bay Delta hydrodynamics. Understanding mixing at channel junctions informs how fish and water quality parameters are affected by anthropogenic influences. My work is a mixture of civil and environmental engineering, fluid mechanics, applied mathematics, and computational science. I also have the pleasure of collaborating with excellent individuals such as Prof. Stephen Monismith, Drs. Nancy Monsen, Derek Fong, and Ed Gross in addition to other members of the SUNTANS modeling team.
