Research Interests

Numerical modeling of tsunamis

  • Analysis and characterisation of tsunamis from in-situ measurements
  • Assimilation of those in-situ measurements into numerical forecast models
  • High-resolution coastal inundation modeling of tsunamis
  • Development of public warnings from numerical model output
  • Characterisation of coastal variability with respect to shelf and harbor resonances and their implications for tsunamis

Current Research Projects

  • Tsunami hazard assessment for U.S. Coastlines based on generation, propagation, and inundation modeling
  • Development of techniques for assessing tsunami forecast skill
