I grew up on the Great South Bay of Long Island, New York, so I have always had a passion for coastal processes. I'm particularly interested in how strong storms such as hurricanes and Nor'easters affect the coastal zone. My current research project involves identifying the dynamic processes that control mouth bar development in the Apalachicola River basin in Florida. So far I have only started field work and I look forward to seeing where my research will take me.
Tulane is a gorgeous University set in an amazing city. The Earth and Environmental Sciences Department made the transition to graduate life very easy and the students here are always willing to help. I enjoy being a teaching assistant because I get to share my passion for earth and environmental science with undergraduates in hope to give them a greater appreciation for the earth we share. The food is amazing and the sights are just incredible. There is no place in the world like New Orleans!
