M.S. student Jessica Gorski was recognized as the Masters Scholar of the Year for Research by the NCSU College of Engineering (CoE). Students were nominated by departments within the CoE, and Jessica was selected for this award to recognize outstanding scholarly achievement and dedication to the NC State community and beyond. The award includes a cash stipend.
Jessica’s research is centered on finding answers to this question: During a hurricane, where will the beaches and dunes ‘fail’ along our coast? These systems are heavily engineered – communities invest in and rely on beaches and dunes to protect homes and lives during storms. She has become a leader in research with computational models to advance understanding of storm-driven erosion and flooding of coastal regions.
This award was publicized by both the CoE and our department.
Congratulations to Jessica!
