Congratulations to Dr. MP Delisle who successfully defended her Ph.D. entitled “A high-resolution numerical investigation of beach groundwater and swash interactions” on May 30, 2023. Her work on surface and subsurface interactions in the swash zone demonstrated that elevated beach groundwater levels increase runup extent and duration and has significant implications on coastal vulnerability. We can’t wait to see how MP’s research evolves in her new position as a Postdoctoral Investigator in the PVLab at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
