Aaron is a coastal and environmental engineer with a background in estuarine/coastal dynamics, coastal process analysis, computational fluid dynamics, sediment transport, and shoreline protection. He performs engineering analysis and design, and he specializes in hydrodynamic and morphodynamic modelling, storm surge modelling, shoreline restoration, and coastal resilience.
During the Tottenville Shoreline protection project, Aaron designed mile-long shore protection structures to reduce wave action and coastal erosion. Additionally, the design enhanced local ecosystems and improved beach access along the shoreline. It was a heavily collaborative project and used cutting-edge, phase-resolving wave modelling tools.
If he isn’t out protecting our coastal environments or improving our coastal structures, Aaron is probably working on his photography or spending time with his two young sons.
