Congratulations to Maria Winters who was awarded an Outstanding Students Abstract Award at the 2022 International Conference on Coastal Engineering for her abstract "Observation and Numerical Modeling of a Dune Overwash and Breaching Event".
Six CFL members were selected to present their research at the 2022 International Conference on Coastal Engineering (ICCE) held from December 4 - 9, 2022 in Sydney, Australia. ICCE is the premier coastal engineering conference held biennially under the auspices of the Coastal Engineering Research Council of COPRI. The goal of the ICCE is to promote academic and technical exchange on coastal related studies covering a wide range of topics including coastal waves, nearshore currents, coastal structures, sediment transport, coastal morphology, beach nourishment, natural hazards and coastal management.
Congratulations to Margit Maple who was awarded the Outstanding Presentation Award at the 2022 Young Coastal Scientists and Engineerings Conference - Americas for her presentation "Modeling Coastal Water Table Fluctuations Using PFLOTRAN". She follows in the footsteps of previous CFL awardee Marie-Pierre Delisle (2021).
MP Delisle was awarded 1st place in the collegiate competition for her presentation titled "Beach surface-subsurface flow interactions and impacts on coastal flooding" at the WE22 Society of Women Engineers conference. MP presented her research to a broad technical audience in a "rapid fire" presentation and was chosen as the top competitor among ten finalists in her category.
Five CFL members were selected to present their research virtually at the 2022 Ocean Sciences Meeting held from February 28 - March 4, 2022. Co-sponsored by the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), and The Oceanography Society (TOS), Ocean Sciences Meeting (OSM) is the global leader in ocean sciences conferences.

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.
