Stephen Monismith, the Obayashi Professor in the School of Engineering, was recognized for the development of physically-based understanding of freshwater and coastal fluid environments for ecosystem health and sustainable management. His current research includes studies of estuarine hydrodynamics and mixing processes, flows over coral reefs and on the inner shelf, turbulence in density stratified fluids, and physical-biological interactions in phytoplankton and benthic systems. He is a professor of civil and environmental engineering.
