welcome to my personal website

I completed my PhD Thesis in 2009 on cohesive sediment transport modelling and have since participated in several research projects. My main research interests lie in the field of modelling sediment transport in coastal/shelf areas, sediment-hydro dynamics’ interactions and coastal circulation. Here you can find information on my academic studies, publications and research activities.

Barrier island resilience assessment: Applying the ecological principles to geomorphological data

Barrier island resilience assessment: Applying the ecological principles to geomorphological data

Novel methodology, based on identifying barrier states and related threshold crossings and on reconstructing the resilience trajectories of barrier islands, thus expressing the spatiotemporal changes in resilience topography (resilience dimensions and barrier stable states), in response to external conditions and internal barrier organisation

Coastal ridge constructive processes at a multi‐decadal scale in Barreta Island (Southern Portugal)

Coastal ridge constructive processes at a multi‐decadal scale in Barreta Island (Southern Portugal)

We explore the geometry and growth mechanisms of multiple ridges, generated at Barreta Island (Ria Formosa, S Portugal), as a consequence of the rapid progradation of the island over the last 70 years, aiming to distinguish growth mechanisms and better understand the main parameters determining the final geometry of the observed ridges.

Rethinking suspended mussel-farming modelling: Combining hydrodynamic and bio-economic models to support integrated aquaculture management

Rethinking suspended mussel-farming modelling: Combining hydrodynamic and bio-economic models to support integrated aquaculture management

Integrated process of designing and implementing models for the management of mussel-farming areas, combining modelling strategies and levels of analysis, providing the details required to explore and evaluate a number of management alternatives.
