UCAR/NOAA/NWS/NCEP/EMC, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Ali Abdolali is a Scientist in Coastal/Ocean Engineering at NOAA - National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and UCAR - The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research.
His field of research includes but not limited to Coastal Hazards (Tsunamis, Hurricanes & Storm Surges), Tsunami Early Warning Systems (TEWS), Nearshore hydrodynamics (Coastal Morphodynamics & Wetland hydrodynamics), Climate Change and Sea Level Rise, Compressible Fluids (Hydro-acoustic Waves), Wave-Structure Interaction and Renewable Oceanic Wave Energy (Wave Energy Converter Devices, WECs).
Currently, he is a part of the WaveWatch3 development team at NCEP/NOAA, working on wave-surge coupling framework and explicit/implicit WaveWatch3 development. Prior to his current work at NOAA, he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate with the Center for Applied Coastal Research (CACR) at the University of Delaware working on wetland circulation (numerical modeling and field measurements) and tsunamigenic induced acoustic-gravity waves in the open ocean and arctic zones. He received his PhD. in Civil/Coastal and Harbour Engineering from Rome University, where he worked on Tsunami Early Warning Systems, compressible fluid and Wave Energy Converter devices.
