Dr. Stephanie Smallegan’s research interests are within the field of Coastal Engineering and focus on short and long-term beach erosion. Specifically, she is interested in the impacts of waves and surge on barrier islands and how these processes interact with engineered structures. Her current work uses numerical (computer) modeling to simulate these complex processes in order to assess the impact made to beaches during storms and daily conditions.
Most recently, she has focused on two locations impacted by Hurricane Sandy: 1) the Bay Head/Mantoloking area, NJ and 2) Assateague Island, VA.
Stephanie received her MS in Civil Engineering from Georgia Tech and her PhD in Civil Engineering from Virginia Tech.
