Marsooli research lab is part of the Civil and Ocean Engineering programs in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Ocean Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology. Our research is motivated by applications of fluid dynamics in the context of flood risk assessment, flood hazard mitigation, river and coastal management, and climate adaptation. By combining theories, measurements, and computational and statistical modeling, we specifically study storm surge and wave hazards, flood hazards and mitigation, coastal hydrodynamics, coastal processes, and climate change impacts.

Stevens Institute of Technology is located in Hoboken, New Jersey which is just 10 minutes subway ride from New York City. The Stevens campus overlooks the Manhattan skyline. Stevens is one of the oldest technological universities in the United States, offering some of the highest national rankings for career placement and salary potential (please see here). It is a research-intensive school reputable for its engineering, science and management programs.
