|Name and Biography|
Scott C. Hagen
Professor & Director, LSU Center for Coastal Resiliency; Louisiana Sea Grant Laborde Chair
Scott Hagen has authored more than 85 peer-reviewed journal articles with focus on
massively parallel, high performance computational modeling of ocean, coastal, and
inland astronomical and meteorological tides and flows. His more recent efforts expand
into transport and biological modeling with respect to the coastal dynamics of sea
level rise in general and salt marsh impacts in particular. Scott and his students
are conducting scientific research that is applied through
Research Scientist, LSU Center for Coastal Relisiency
Life-long Floridian, a twin (brother-brother), schooled and trained at UCF (BS, MS, PhD and post-doc), with professional experience in academia (UNF), regulation (FDEP) and consulting (independent). Expertise is with astronomic tides and storm surge, particularly as relating to estuarine hydrodynamics, salinity transport and coastal biology, and numerical modeling (ADCIRC, DG-SWEM and other codes) with high-performance computing systems.
Sandy Dokka Parfait
Administrative Coordinator; Press and Media Coordinator, LSU Center for Coastal Resiliency
Sandy Parfait Coordinates the day-to-day operations for the LSU Center for Coastal Resiliency. She is a graduate of LSU where she received a BFA. Sandy has a decade of experience in program management and event planning.
Postdoctoral Researcher, LSU Center for Coastal Resiliency
Jin Ikeda is a postdoctoral researcher at the Louisiana State University Center for Coastal Resiliency. Ikeda attained a PhD in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas at San Antonio. He has research experiences in hydrodynamic and morphological simulation and laboratory experiments of sediment dynamics. His current research interest is sea-level rise and climate change effects on wetlands.
