Vita--Born February 6, 1950 in Stamford, CT, married with three children and two grandchildren.
Professional Interests—Surface and groundwater hydraulics and contamination, environmental fluid mechanics, hazardous waste site remediation.
EDUCATION
Massachusetts Institute of Technology--ScD degree in Civil Engineering, June 1980. Doctoral dissertation "Longshore Currents Generated by Wind, Tide and Waves," prepared under supervision of Professor O.S. Madsen, consisted of an analytical model describing longshore current formation in the offshore zone.
