Gates that can prevent flood waters from inundating coastal communities during storm events are known as storm surge barriers. These barriers have the capacity to protect people and their financial interests from flood damages. Mezic plans to develop a more comprehensive model to predict the costs and benefits associated with a storm surge barrier system in Long Island, NY.

Mezic was also a Fulbright semifinalist.
