Hello and welcome! This site displays some of the work I did as a graduate student in the NCSU Physics Department from 2008 to 2013. I worked in the Geoinformation Science and Modeling Group (GeoSIEM) under the direction of Dr. Helena Mitasova and Dr. Lubos Mitas. Please feel free to contact me if something you see interests you!

I worked on a couple of projects including:

I also developed a Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics simulation of wind-driven sand transport in coastal settings. Simulation results of transport over coastal dunes in the Outer Banks are shown below.

The terrain and SPH particles are shown on the left (green is high-elevation dune and gray sea level). The rate of elevation change (which is interpolated from the particles) is shown on the right.

The map view of the region is shown below.
