I am the coordinator of the Civil Engineering Hydraulics Laboratory at UH. The lab is
equipped with wave flumes suitable for experimental studies on wave energy devices for
both teaching an
d research. I am currently a team member of the DoE National Marine
Renewable Energy Center at UH and will carry out experimental studies on wave focusing,
wave energy devices and other related topics in collaboration with my UH colleagues and
local utilit
y companies. The center was recently funded by DoE for the next five years. I am
currently the Co
-
P.I. of an ONR/DURIP grant of $420,000 (2008
-
2010) to construct a new
deeper wave flume in the hydraulics lab with a computer controlled wavemaker. This new
f
lume will further enhance the capability of our lab in conducting research in coastal and
ocean engineering.

I have been a faculty team member for the Computer Science, Engineering, & Mathematics
Scholarship Program for underrepresented students at the Uni
versity of Hawaii, funded by
National Science Foundation, from 2000 to present. I have also been a mentor to high
school summer interns in our hydraulics lab working on research projects in hydraulic and
coastal engineering for each summer.
