I specialize in coastal and urban disaster prevention research. Currently I hold a Research Assistant Professor joint position. I am hosted by the Environmental Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory where I am working on a day-to-day basis. My home institute is the University of Notre Dame where I conduct research with Professor Westerink’s Computational Hydraulics Laboratory (CHL).
I have particularly strong research expertise in developing and advancing coastal ocean numerical models over large multiscale regions.
- During my PhD in the Disaster Prevention Research Institute at Kyoto University I developed a multiscale coupled 2D-3D numerical model for tsunamis, called 2CLOWNS-3D.
- During my postdoc in CHL I became a developer of the ADCIRC hydrodynamic model and have made many advances to enable it to model storm tides (surge + tide) more accurately on a global scale, and to incorporate the effects of density stratification.
Please check out my current project on the GLObal Coastal Ocean Flood Forecasting System.
