Consulting

While I am a research professor at Stevens Institute, I can devote a small amount of my time to outside consulting projects.  This can be useful for expert witness work, or if there are small funding opportunities where a project would benefit from my general knowledge of physical oceanographic or river processes, climate change, flood adaptation, or coastal flooding and storm impacts.

Prior projects include:

  • Hurricane Sandy expert witness cases relating to NJ Transit, Amtrak, and Long Island Power Authority
  • New York City Panel on Climate Change – report authorship
  • Housing and Urban Development Rebuild By Design competition – winning team

Other possible project areas include the Hudson River Estuary Grants Program Request for Applications (RFAs), New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission Request for Proposals (RFPs), the NYS Environmental Protection Fund, and NJ DEP’s Regional Resilience Planning Grants.
