Prospective Students

Contact me  or Alan Blumberg if you are interested in meeting to learn more about student opportunities in our research group.  I am always happy to help with guidance on term papers or other student projects — check the “Projects” links or the “News” links on my home page for areas I’m spending the most time working on.

We currently have a M.S. or PhD research position open for coastal adaptation research on Jamaica Bay, including coastal ocean modeling of storm surges and water quality.

Here are some funding options to make more long-term research possible:

  • Summer research projects for Stevens Scholar students – potential research areas include but aren’t limited to:  Quantifying flood risk in New York City due to storm surges and sea level rise; Studying how natural systems like wetlands or structural systems like surge barriers can ameliorate coastal flooding and sea level rise; Building a hurricane storm surge warning system for NYC that combines work with a hurricane model and a storm surge model
