Civil, Coastal, and Ocean Engineering

M.S., 2013 Coastal Engineering; Univ. of Florida
B.S., 2011 Civil Engineering; Univ. of Florida
Mr. Nestler earned a Master of Science in Coastal Engineering degree as well as a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering with a minor in Business Administration from the University of Florida. As an Engineer in Training, Mr. Nestler is involved with analysis, design, permitting, and research for a variety of coastal engineering projects.
As a graduate student at the University of Florida, Mr. Nestler focused his education on the ocean and wave dynamics along the coastline and the resulting geomorphological and sedimentary impacts upon the coastline.  He concurrently concentrated his efforts in data analysis techniques through the use of computer programming. 
Since joining Olsen Associates, Inc. in 2014, Mr. Nestler has worked closely with senior engineers preparing physical monitoring reports of beach restoration projects throughout the Southeast US, geotechnical investigations for development of dredging borrow areas, statistical analysis of turbidity and nearshore rock exposure fluctuation, as well as preparing construction plans for private resorts and residences throughout Florida and the Caribbean.  Specific project experience includes aiding in the construction management of the placement of approximately 700,000 cy of mined upland beach fill in Broward County Segment II, historical shoreline and volume change analysis as well as numerical modeling of the St. Lucie County, FL shoreline, data collection oversight for beach restoration borrow area development offshore of Amelia Island, FL, and extreme storm impact analysis to the Duval County, FL shoreline.  Additional experience includes the analysis of the interaction of nearshore hardbottom with beach profile changes in Brevard, St. Lucie, and Broward Counties, FL.
Mr. Nestler is involved in the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Florida Shore and Beach Preservation Association.
