Bio: Dr Emily Lane is a coastal ocean modeller with a specific focus on natural hazards. She is actively researching tsunami and storm surge inundation. In particular she is interested in tsunamis caused by non-seismic sources, e.g. volcanoes and submarine landslides. She currently has a Marsden project investigating volcanic tsunamis and has previously been involved in a probabilistic hazard assessment of the submarine landslide generated tsunamis in Cook Strait Canyon. Her background is applied mathematics and she has a PhD in applied mathematics with a geoscience minor from the University of Arizona. She has been working at NIWA since 2006.
