Biographical Sketch

I am involved in climate change science studies - such as sea level change, sea surface temperature and rainfall reconstructions. I apply these in my studies related to coastal erosion and flooding and coral reef evolution. My research on coastal flooding integrates geomorphologic with meteorological factors in the analyses of flood vulnerability of coastal plains and flood events.
