BML - Dr. Sarah Giddings: "Oceanic impacts on the circulation and water quality within small low-inflow estuaries"
From Noah Killeen
About the Speaker: Dr. Giddings is a coastal physical oceanographer specializing in estuarine and coastal processes with an interest in interdisciplinary projects that address how physics impacts important biological and chemical processes in the coastal environment. These coastal regions are of particular interest to her because of the dual (and sometimes competing) human and ecosystem services that they provide. Moreover they are altered by anthropogenic modifications and a changing climate. She started as an Assistant Professor at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in January 2014. Prior to joining SIO, she was a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Washington, School of Oceanography, from 2012 – 2013, and a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Washington, School of Oceanography, from 2011 – 2012. She received her M.S. and Ph.D. in Civil & Environmental Engineering from Stanford University, and her B.S. in Civil & Environmental Engineering from Berkeley.
