Dr. Angelica Rodriguez
Angelica is a postdoctoral scholar with the Center for Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation at SIO. She holds a B.S. in Physics with Specialization in Earth Science and a minor in Environmental Systems. In May 2019 she received her PhD in Physical Oceanography from SIO. Broadly, she is interested in the interaction between estuaries and the coastal ocean. Her doctoral work focused on the impacts of wave-current interaction on small scale buoyant coastal outflows and shoal-channel exchange in San Diego Bay. During her postdoc, she will be assessing how different meteorological and wave conditions in the San Diego region affect water levels and currents in SD Bay with the goal of informing shoreline protection and adaptation strategies. She will still be involved in work with our lab, creating the linkage between estuarine hydro/wave dynamics and shoreline vulnerability.
