PhD student Ajimon Thomas won Honorable Mention. Ajimon described his research to quantify interactions between tides and storm surge along the U.S. southeast coast during Hurricane Matthew.
This event is an annual showcase for research in our Environmental, Water Resources, and Coastal (EWC) engineering group, as well as a recruiting event for potential students. Awardees are selected by judges from other academic departments, government agencies, and consulting firms. Students presented their posters to judges and visitors during a poster session, and then finalists presented orally to the entire audience.
Congratulations to Nelson and Ajimon!
Dr. Hagen was the keynote speaker at the EWC Research Symposium, which is an annual showcase for research in our Environmental, Water Resources, and Coastal (EWC) engineering group, as well as a recruiting event for potential students. His presentation was “How to assess climate change impacts at the coastal land margin and product transdisciplinary research outcomes.”
It was great to connect with Dr. Hagen!
