If you are a former student in my research group, and want to update or correct your entry on the People page, please let me know and I will change it.
Dr. Navid Tahvildari, an associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Old Dominion University, appeared in a recent short film regarding a flood control project in Norfolk, VA. The film was produced by WHRO Public Media. Dr. Tahvildari was the first Ph.D. graduate from this research group, defending his dissertation on surface-interfacial wave interactions in 2011.
The College of Engineering wrote a story on the post-Hurricane Ian damage survey work in Ft Myers FL.
Congratulations to Dr. Sunghoon Han, who successfully defended his dissertation entitled “Hydrodynamic Characteristics Present in Nonlinear Long Wave Amplification in the Shadow Zone of Offshore Islands” on 22 August 2022. He will be working as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Old Dominion University, working with Dr. Navid Tahvildari .
Congratulations to Dr. In-Chul Kim, who defended his dissertation titled “A consistent nonlinear frequency domain model for finite depth ocean wave propagation” on 10 March 2022. He will begin work as a postdoctoral associate at Laboratoire de Recherche en Hydrodynamique, Energetique et Environnment Atmospherique (LHEEA) at Ecole Centrale Nantes, in Nantes, France this summer.
This is also quite late, but the department wrote up a nice article on our new grant from the National Academies Healthy Ecosystems program, in partnership with the Environmental Defense Fund.
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) has entered into a cooperative agreement with the Department of Interior and Department of Energy to support the Ocean Energy Safety Institute (OESI). This continued support will involve our group. We look forward to working with an outstanding group of scientists and engineers on this project. The press release is shown here.
In an effort to drag the research group’s web page kicking and screaming into the 2020’s, we are moving to WordPress. Please excuse the slow pace of updating as we become familiar with WordPress.
