Project Description

Dr. Ortiz is an assistant professor in the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at North Carolina State University. She earned her B.A. in geosciences at Wellesley College with a double major in classical civilizations, and she completed an M.S. in civil and environmental engineering and a Ph.D. in marine geology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Joint Program. Dr. Ortiz’s research is focused on coastal geomorphology and understanding the evolution of coasts under rising sea levels. She uses numerical models, satellite imagery, fieldwork, and a flume to study the evolution of coastal systems and predict their resiliency over the next century. Recent projects have looked at the impact of pond expansion on the Mississippi Delta coast resulting in large-scale land loss and the role of vegetation in delta resiliency with rising seas.
