Statement on Professor Ehab Meselhe and Research Assistant Professor Kelin Hu

July 16, 2019

We are thrilled that all charges have been dismissed against Professor Ehab Meselhe and Research Assistant Professor Kelin Hu. Meselhe and Hu remain key members of our river and coastal science and engineering faculty and we look forward to their continued work that is so fundamental to the future of Louisiana and the entire Mississippi River Delta and Gulf Coast. Tulane is fortunate to count Hu and Meselhe, a nationally renowned coastal engineer among its team of researchers dedicated to addressing the central questions facing our region. Tulane is committed to being a local and national leader in addressing coastal issues within Louisiana and around the globe, but these questions are much bigger than any one university. We look forward to collaborating with our colleagues across multiple universities and research institutions, working collectively to enhance the health, safety and well-being of people throughout Louisiana, the nation and the world.
