We are proud to acknowledge Dr. Hany Elwany as a Lifetime Member of the Coastal Education & Research Foundation. Dr. Elwany received a B.S. degree in Engineering from Alexandria University in 1971. In 1977, he completed his Ph.D. at the University of Dundee, United Kingdom. He obtained an additional B.S. degree in Mathematics and Statistics at Alexandria University in 1980. Dr. Elwany has extensive experience with nearshore oceanography, coastal processes, coastal engineering, and estuarine dynamics. He was the principal investigator for the physical oceanographic program of one of the largest environmental studies ever conducted on the U.S. west coast (at San Onofre). He has conducted in-depth studies of Nile Delta erosion, particularly since the construction of the Aswan Dam. His experience also includes projects involving optimization, numerical modeling, structural dynamic analysis, design of offshore structures, and data analyses, simulation, and dynamic modeling of ocean and coastal conditions. As an educator, both at Liverpool and Alexandria Universities, he taught courses in dynamics, statistics, numerical analysis, computer applications, and maritime engineering.
Dr. Elwany also serves as the President of Coastal Environments, a unique multi-disciplinary oceanographic, coastal engineering, and environmental consulting firm. Coastal Environments, founded in 1988, is comprised of over 30 professional associates, all experts in their respective fields. Technical specialties include coastal and ocean engineering, engineering geology, oceanography, marine biology and geology, environmental analysis, economics, statistics, and computer programming/modeling.
