CollapseAccomplishments

Highlights:

I have had an eclectic career, almost entirely revolving around the restoration of the Mississippi River delta and other large, threatened coastal ecosystems. I have taken on a variety of tasks in a strategic sequence based on my assessment of what was needed. As a founding board member and the first executive director of the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana, I worked to set up programs at the state and federal level to fund and carry out delta restoration projects, including river diversions and barrier island restoration. I received a number of awards from LSU, the Coalition, and the National Audubon Society.

Companies I like:

Moffatt & Nichol, Environmental Defense Fund, Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority

CollapseResponsibilities

Currently, I am largely called on for technical analyses and peer review of river and coastal hydrology and hydrodynamics problems, sometimes as an expert witness in litigation. In the past, I was involved in setting up and funding non-profit organizations, arranging testimony to Congressional committees, and carrying out academic research, teaching and advising graduate students.
