Seth Guikema

Project Aims to Help Mid-Atlantic Combat Hurricanes, Heat Waves

October 29, 2013

The National Science Foundation has awarded Seth Guikema, an assistant professor of geography and environmental engineering at Johns Hopkins University’s Whiting School of Engineering, a $3 million grant to build a program that will determine the effect of repeated hurricanes and heat waves on the Mid-Atlantic region and suggest ways to improve the region’s ability to withstand them.
