Dive into marine science topics with the Ocean Expert Exchange series hosted by Scientist in Every Florida School and the ANGARI Foundation.  Join us on these virtual experiences to deepen your knowledge of the marine world through livestream on Zoom and YouTube.

Meet Dr. Kelly Kibler to learn about her work in ecohydraulics, a discipline at the crossroads of engineering and aquatic ecology.


Topic: Engineering with Nature for Climate Adaptation

Speaker: Dr. Kelly Kibler, University of Central Florida

Kelly Kibler is an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Construction Engineering, and National Center for Integrated Coastal Research at the University of Central Florida. She also serves as the Associate Editor for the Journal of Hydrology. Dr. Kibler’s research focus is in ecohydraulics – at the crossroads of engineering and aquatic ecology. She studies physical-biological interactions in river and estuarine systems, in both natural waterways and those modified by dams, dredging, levies and hardened structures. Her research seeks water development pathways that minimize ecosystem damages and promote preservation or restoration of aquatic ecosystem services. Dr. Kibler earned her Ph.D. in Water Resources Engineering and M.Sc. in Forest Engineering – Hydrology from Oregon State University, and her B.Sc. in Environmental Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
