I am a graduate student in Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington working with the Environmental Fluid Mechanics group. I am a May 2016 graduate of Louisiana State University where I studied Coastal Environmental Science with a concentration in Environmental Science Research and a minor in Mathematics. I am interested in the use of numerical modeling for coastal oceanography research and coastal engineering applications. As an undergrad at LSU, I engaged in research related to oceanography including a Summer Student Fellowship at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and successfully defended an undergraduate thesis for the LSU Ogden Honors College. I have also been involved in many campus organizations and projects serving my school and the surrounding community.
