Marsooli research lab is part of the Ocean Engineering program 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 numerical modeling, we specifically study storm surge and wave hazards, flood mitigation, coastal hydrodynamics, estuarine transport processes, and unsteady sediment transport.

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