MP Delisle was awarded 1st place in the collegiate competition for her presentation titled "A numerical study of surface-subsurface flow interactions and impacts on coastal flooding" at the 2022 WE Local Albuquerque conference. MP presented her research to a broad technical audience in three styles: short form abstract submission, visual poster presentation and lightning talk presentation.
MP Delisle was awarded the 2022 American Society of Civil Engineers, Los Angeles Youth Member Forum (ASCE LA YMF) Outstanding Graduate Student Scholarship. She was presented the award at the Student Night & Job Fair held on Friday, February 4, 2022, at The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
Joseph Lucey was awarded the 2021 Robert L. Weigel Scholarship for Coastal Studies with his submission "Compound coastal flood risk in a semi-arid urbanized region: The implications of copula choice, sampling, and infrastructure". He follows in the footsteps of previous CFL awardees Dr. Timu Gallien (2011), Marie-Pierre Delisle (2018, winner), Maria Winters (2018, runner-up), and Burson Tang (2020).
Maria Winters was selected as an Early Career Fellow for a third year with the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability's Center for Diverse Leadership in Science (CDLS). CDLS Early Career Fellows participate in a program of skills, growth, research, community engagement and collaborative research activities, community-building, engagement in mentorship, inspiring others, and sharing their work.
Professor Timu Gallien was named the 2021 Civil and Environmental Engineering Professor of the Year by UCLA’s American Society of Civil Engineers.
"The last six weeks of surf in the North Pacific have turned into a blur as swell after swell hammered Hawaii and the West Coast. Was it the Day of Days that Pete Mel scored the best wave ever or was that a different swell? And when was it that he got towed into the wave that was like 100 feet? Another swell, apparently.” (Kevin Wallis, Surfline’s Director of Forecasting)
An article by Marcus Sanders (Surfline) highlights the enormous wave action hitting the Hawaii and California since mid-December 2020.
MP Delisle & Maria Winters were both awarded the 2020 Anchor QEA Scholarship. A total of eight scholarship recipients were selected out of a highly qualified field of individuals from different universities located across the United States, studying in multiple program areas.
Burson Tang was awarded the 2020 Robert L. Weigel Scholarship for Coastal Studies with his submission "Numerical Simulation of Coastal Flooding from Multiple Factors". He follows in the footsteps of previous CFL awardees Dr. Timu Gallien (2011), Marie-Pierre Delisle (2018, winner), and Maria Winters (2018, runner-up).
