I'm Oceanographer and got my BSc. at the University of Vale do Itajaí (UNIVALI - Itajaí/SC/Brazil). In my Bachelor's thesis, I've worked with GIS analysis, beach profile measurement, and sediment analysis to verify beach morphodynamic evolution over time and space.
My MSc. was in the Geography program at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC - Florianópolis/SC/Brazil) - research line of Coastal Oceanography and Marine Geology. My master's research focused on a statistical analysis of wave data (including extremes) and coastal modelling of wave, current, and sediment transport, as well as beach profile and planform stability to verify if the wave climate was changing and how this change was affecting the studied beaches.
For more than four years, still at UFSC, I've also worked on coastal modelling projects in partnership with the Brazilian Environment Ministry. This brought me to specialize in project management (MBA - UNIVALI).
Currently, I'm a PhD candidate at the University of Auckland (New Zealand), and my research focuses on improving the knowledge and predictability of coastal flooding from local to global scales through the use of machine learning models.
