Faculty Director, Environmental Studies LLC

Dr. Lwiza is a marine physicist. He studies ocean processes that affect transport (e.g., currents and tides) and density distribution (e.g., mixing and heat balance). His research interests are climate change, structure and dynamics of the coastal seas, and remote sensing. He designs field experiments to observe these processes by incorporating modern technology, with a particular emphasis on the acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP), GPS-tracked Lagrangian drifters, and ocean gliders, and satellites.
