Sam is a M.S. candidate in the Hydrologic Sciences graduate group, focused on Pacific coast bar-built estuaries through the lens of hydrology. His thesis work looks to understand the role of river flow regimes in shaping the seasonal patterns of estuary closure events. He's also interested in estuarine beach dynamics and the effects of sea level rise on marsh accretion in bar-built estuaries. He holds a B.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Virginia Tech and enjoys long walks and contra dancing.
