Associate Professor, Marine Science
I...offer undergraduate and graduate students various opportunities to gain experience as members of our research team.
Ph.D., Chr.-Albrechts-University Kiel/Germany, Geology-Paleontology, 2000

Research and Teaching Interests
My Coastal Geosystems Research Lab deals with a number of fundamental (sea level variability and coastal change, river deltas and human landscaping, sediment- /hydrodynamics on continental shelves, paleoceanography and -climate) and applied (solutions for harbor silting issues, exploration of offshore sand resources, heavy metal contamination, microplastic contamination) geo-related projects.
We currently cooperate with various universities and public institutions in South Carolina. Our projects are also performed in collaboration with colleagues in North Carolina, Georgia, Massachusetts and California, and in Germany, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay.
I teach various courses on coastal and marine geoscience and sustainable governance at undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D. levels, and offer undergraduate and graduate students various opportunities to gain experience as members of our research team.
