Zaid received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in physics from the University of Basrah in Iraq. He finished his doctorate from the University of South Carolina in the School of the Earth Ocean and Environment, where he focused on using high-frequency radar signals to measure ocean wave spectra. His doctoral research falls within the area of physical oceanography. In his new position as a postdoctoral researcher, he is working with Dr. Siddharth Narayan on numerical modeling to simulate the interaction of waves, surges and other processes with vegetation and reefs in coastal environments.
