Ms Katie Wilson


Position: PhD student in Coastal Engineering at the Water Research Laboratory

Department: Civil and Environmental Engineering

University/Institute/Company: UNSW


I am a first year PhD student at WRL.

My research aims to provide a seasonal to annual forecast of coastal hazards such as erosion to quantify risks for wave-dominated coastlines with a goal of providing Coastal Climatic Outlooks, similar to the rainfall and temperature outlooks produced by the Bureau of Meteorology. This research will help governing bodies to accurately assess coastal risks over the following year, allowing to adapt coastal management plans before hazards occur.

I aspires to follow a career path integrating the fields of science and engineering in order to promote sustainability and follow her passion for the ocean and environment. When not at the lab, you can find me surfing, climbing, kayaking and hiking.
