Dan is pursuing a PhD in Hydrologic Sciences at UC Davis. He currently focuses on roadway flooding of Highway 37 and resilience of seagrass and salt marshes. The project for Highway 37 focuses on developing a probabilistic framework for predicting roadway inundation and how signals propagate through the San Francisco Bay. The project on seagrass and salt marshes looks into how the two coastal ecosystems interact and their resilience in a changing world. He obtained a B.S. in Environmental Systems Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University.
