Selected research projects

Wave attenuation over coastal vegetation

We study flow-structure-vegetation interaction under orthogonal wave-current conditions through experiments and mathematical modeling.

Dynamics of flexible vegetation under orthogonal waves and currents

We use imaging processing techniques, force measurements, and numerical simulation to investigate the dynamics of flexible vegetation under orthogonal waves and currents.

Sediment and carbon retention within coastal vegetation

We study the impact of hydrodynamics on sediment dynamics within coastal habitats.  The flow-vegetation-sediment model will be applied to predict the retention rate of sediment and carbon

Underwater imaging for monitoring submerged structures and vegetation

We prototype the monitoring system with a live stream for submerged structures and vegetation for operation, predictive maintenance, and emergency response.
