Celso Ferreira leads the Mason Flood Hazards Research Lab, focusing on investigating and developing solutions that increase society's resilience to water-related natural hazards.

Research Spotlight

Celso Ferreira leads the Flood Hazards Research Lab at Mason. He is one of the faculty members exploring the connections of climate change to the ecosystems, and populations of the Chesapeake Bay. He is currently working with the Nature Conservancy on a project that seeks to assess the economic impact of sea-level rise on the coastal communities in Maryland.

The lab is currently investigating the potential of nature to reduce hurricane-induced flooding and wave impacts on critical infrastructure and coastal regions. His group research strives to incorporate future climate variability, sea-level rise, and human-induced environmental changes into engineering practice and design. His group also focuses on integrating riverine, urban, and coastal flooding analysis in real-time, near-future forecasting, and critical infrastructure design.
