PROFESSIONAL DATA

Degree PhD
Job type Research
Research Area(s) Physical Oceanography , Marine and Coastal Engineering , Physical Oceanography , Marine and Coastal Engineering
Research Activities Research on tidal inlet dynamics and coastal processes in general. Responsible on preparing, collecting and processing of physical oceanographic data at several coastal inlets.

Experience on collecting oceanographic data (topography, bathymetry, waves, currents and sediment sampling). Evolved on the organisation of several coastal oceanography surveys, both for academic research facilities and private consulting companies. Collaboration with several European Universities and Research Centres. Experience on writing of proposals for project financing.
Research Region Ria Formosa Barrier Island System, Southern Portugal
Working languages Portuguese, English, Italian, Spanish
Skills/Expertise Prepare and undergo current measurements at a multi-inlet system using a boat mounted Acoustic Doppler Currentmeter Profiler (ADCP). Prepare and undergo topographic and bathymetric surveys. Develop protocols and computer scripts to process the collected dat. Specialised on wave-currents processes and sediment transport; Monitor the dredging activities on a navigable channel. Elaborate reports on the impacts of those activities regarding the physical impacts on the adjacent coastline and channel stability. Conceptual model developments based on regional sediment management actions. Performing of local detail sediment budget computation and sediment transport pathways;
