I am a Registered Civil Engineer (PE) specialized in Coastal, Hydraulic, Ocean, and Water Resources Engineering because:
1. My coursework for Bachelor's, Master's, and Ph.D. Degrees is interesting in applied mathematics, hydrodynamics, environmental fluid mechanics, numerical methods of partial differential equations, computational fluid mechanics, and engineering hydrology.
2. My capabilities build through independent studies for Bachelor's, Master’s and Ph.D. Degrees, emphasizing on lake and river hydrodynamics, coastal and estuarine circulations, and inundation in both estuarine tidal flats and riverine flood planes due to storm surge induced by hurricane and/or tsunami.
3. My experiences collect from water resources engineering practice, focusing on hydraulic and hydrologic modelings, stormwater protection, and floodplain management.
I chose to study the oscillations of semi-enclosed water body (Estuary, Lake, and Harbor) induced by hurricanes after the occurrence of Hurricane Katrina on 2005 for my Ph.D. degree. In order to accomplish this goal, I built a numerical model using Finite-Volume Method (FVM) to solve the depth-averaged, non-linear shallow water equations (NLSW) governing the wind-induced oscillations in semi-enclosed water body.
I performed the hydraulic and hydrologic analyses for the design of storm sewer and conducted the design of the storm sewer for the land development design projects. During my tenure with L. D. King, I was in charge of the design of storm sewer for the well-known massive residential development project, the Preserve at Chino, of the City of Chino, California.
