LSU Student Receives NSF Grant to Study Water Management and Resiliency in the Netherlands

Apr 28, 2022

LSU student Kelli Moran is one of 14 in the nation to receive a National Science Foundation (NSF) Grant that supports graduate student study in the Netherlands. Moran is a doctoral candidate in the College of the Coast & Environment.

This $399,718 grant awarded to The Water Institute and the University of New Orleans supports three groups of students over the next three years for two-week educational programs in water management and resiliency in the Netherlands. The program, which will begin its first session this summer, will include work with Deltares, Delft University of Technology and Utrecht University where students will integrate classroom training, field site visits and hands-on instruction in numerical modeling techniques using Delft3D and flume lab experiments.

“The Netherlands and Louisiana are very similar in that they have some of the most engineered coastlines in the world. By exchanging information with the experts there, in addition to the amazing experts at LSU, my research will enable us to better manage the delicate coastlines and ecosystems along the Gulf Coast as well as abroad,” Moran said.
