I’m Robin McLachlan, a PhD candidate at the University of Washington in the School of Oceanography’s Marine Geology and Geophysics program.
As a broadly trained coastal geologist, I study sediment transport from source to sink, mountains to deep sea, focusing on the interaction between sediment and hydrodynamics in the fluvial-marine transition zone. I proudly apply the same scientific rigor and inquiry to my role as an educator and communicator. Thus, I have two overarching and intertwined goals:
- study coastal morphodynamics relating to past, present, and future conditions to inform management and preservation efforts, and
- research and implement teaching strategies that constructively align scientific content and communication skills to best achieve student learning goals and career success.
