Kaustubha Raghukumar, Ph.D.
Senior Scientist

Dr. Kaustubha Raghukumar is an oceanographer with a solid background in physical oceanography, ocean acoustics, and wave propagation physics, and has authored a number of peer-reviewed scientific papers in this area. He has 13 years of experience in modeling and at-sea measurements of hydrodynamic processes, such as surface waves, internal waves, and underwater sound. He has participated in several international at-sea experiments that focused on the impact of oceanographic fluctuations on ocean acoustic propagation. Dr. Raghukumar continues to develop state-of-the-art acoustic monitoring techniques and technologies for the U.S. Department of Energy and the Office of Naval Research. He is concurrently involved in modeling efforts to assimilate wave measurements into regional wave models, to study long-term shoreline change, and to examine the potential environmental effects of marine renewable energy devices.
