Katie Hutschenreuter has joined MRD Staff

MRD is excited to announce that Katie Hutschenreuter has joined MRD staff in Destin, Florida. Katie received her Bachelor’s in Civil Engineering (BCE) from the University of Delaware and her Master’s in Civil Engineering (MS) with a focus on Coastal and Ocean Engineering from Texas A&M University (TAMU) in College Station. At TAMU, Katie completed research studying tidal flows through an inlet using a combination of data from laboratory experiments and computational fluid dynamics modeling.

Katie’s research, at both the undergraduate and graduate level, has given her unique experience in gathering and analyzing laboratory and field data. She also completed coursework - wave mechanics, coastal engineering, environmental fluid mechanics, and ports and harbor design - to enhance her understanding of coastal processes.
