PhD candidate (2018-2022) in Oceanography by the University of São Paulo (USP), Brazil. Master in Physical Oceanography from the Oceanographic Institute of the University of São Paulo (USP). I am an oceanographer, graduated in Oceanography at the University of São Paulo (USP), Brazil. I held a 1-year and 3-month UK exchange in Bangor University, Wales (UK). I was a trainee with a scholarship in 3 projects at the University of São Paulo. The first is part of the Culture and Extension Project of USP in which I worked with satellite data, interactive media and environmental education. The second was my Scientific Initiation (IC) at the Ocean Dynamics Laboratory (LaDO) with a PETROBRAS grant from FUNDESPA aimed at the physical oceanographic characterization of the Campos Basin, mainly in the treatment of CTD data, development of oceanographic profiles using tools such as MATLAB and Python. I am interested in multidisciplinary oceanographic relations focusing on Physics and Biology. I participated in the junior company of the Institute of Oceanography of USP (IO Júnior) for a year and a half and I have experience in organizing and publicizing events. I was intern with FAPESP scholarship in the area of ​​Physical Oceanography. I worked with the subtropical modal water in the southwest of the South Atlantic and with the study of its relation with the concentration of nutrients and chlorophyll in the ocean. I have fluent English and I am formed by the Pentagon school, Campinas, SP. I have the TOEFL proficiency test. During the master's degree, I worked with marine pollution, bacterial decay (Enterococcus, E.coli and thermotolerant Coliform), dispersion of pollutants in the canal of Whiz. São Sebastião in the state of São Paulo. I am doing my PhD in Physical Oceanography with the intention of doing a doctorate sandwich outside the country. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
