Christopher Daly is an Assistant Professor of Coastal Geomorphology in the Marine and Earth Science Department at Florida Gulf Coast University. He obtained his Masters from Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands in 2009 within the Erasmus Mundus Coastal and Marine Engineering and Management (CoMEM) Program, which also allowed him to spend time in Norway and Spain as part of his study program. He completed his Ph.D. in 2013 at the University of Bremen, Germany, within the INTERCOAST Graduate College, which also allowed him to spend a year conducting field research in New Zealand. Dr. Daly’s research interests lie at the intersection of the fields of physical oceanography and coastal geology, specifically looking at the morphodynamic evolution of beach, barrier island, and reef-lines coasts. He also conducts fieldwork and uses remote sensing techniques in order to gether hydrodynamic, bathymetric and topographic datasets. He recently joined FGCU in 2022 and is currently studying storm impacts on the Southwest Florida coast and sediment transport pathways around reef-lined coasts in Jamaica.
