Ian Conery, PhD


After graduating with an interdisciplinary degree in Coastal Resource Management from East Carolina University/Coastal Studies Institute, Dr. Conery joined the USACE Coastal Observations and Analysis Branch as a research oceanographer. He applies field observations, remote sensing, autonomous survey systems and coastal imaging to better understand a variety of nearshore coastal processes including beach-dune morphodynamics and shoreline evolution. His EWN research is a collaboration with Emerald Tutu and Northeastern University, where x-band radar, imaging and in situ instrumentation will be used to evaluate the efficacy of floating vegetation canopies to attenuate wave energy and mitigate coastal erosion.
