Stevens Institute of Technology; Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast (CCRUN)
Description: 

His research is directed towards understanding and predicting the flow processes operating in rivers, lakes, estuaries and the oceans. It has contributed to the creation of ocean observing and forecasting systems which are used for environmental studies, surface vessel operations and as a basis for maritime security. His latest work is to understand and predict the impacts of extreme climate-driven events on urban coasts and to create innovative adaptations to protect people and property - a new discipline called adaptative engineering.
