Kennedy AndrewAndrew Kennedy is Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences at the University of Notre Dame (South Bend, Indiana, USA). A graduate of Queen's University (Kingston, Canada), the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada), and Monash University (Melbourne, Australia), he has previously held positions at the University of Florida and the University of Delaware.

Dr. Kennedy's work studies engineering and geophysical processes at the coastal margins. These include wave transformation and effects, storm surge and damage, and morphological development in the nearshore including the generation and quantification of coastal boulder deposits. Approaches are both experimental and computational, ranging from deployment of wave and surge gauges prior to hurricanes to simulation of nearshore hydrodynamics using high resolution coupled wave/surge models. Recent work has encompassed post-storm evaluations of wave and surge damage and coastal change at many locations.
