Lissa MacVean is part of the Clean Water program at SFEI, focusing on physical processes related to the Bay Area Nutrient Management Program, as well as questions of sediment resuspension and transport.  She received her PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering from UC Berkeley, where she performed observational studies of estuarine hydrodynamics and transport. She then became a Mendenhall postdoctoral fellow at the USGS in Santa Cruz where she investigated the interactions between waves, turbulence, and sediment resuspension on a shallow intertidal mudflat. Prior to joining SFEI, she wrote a model simulating historic outflows from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta as a researcher at UC Berkeley. She has also taught several classes in the Civil and Environmental Engineering departments at UC Berkeley and Stanford University.
