Personal profile

Research Biography

I am a coastal geomorphologist/oceanographer with a BSc in Oceanography from the University of Vale do Itajaí (UNIVALI), Brazil, and a Masters Degree and Ph.D. in Marine Geology from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Brazil. I have joined the School of Environment (College of Science and Engineering) at Flinders University in 2013 after a visiting position at the Department of Geology and Geophysics at Louisiana State University (LSU). I have extensively worked on barrier systems in Southern Brazil and conducted research on surfzone dynamics and sediment transport, beach morphodynamics and sedimentology, aeolian sediment transport, dune ecology, foredune dynamics and barrier evolution. I have applied and expanded the knowledge obtained from studying coastal systems in Brazil to the Australian sandy barriers, in collaboration with researches from Australia and various parts of the world.

Research Interests

My main research interests are in nearshore morphodynamics, coastal sediment transport processes and evolution. I also have strong interest in understanding the impacts of climate change (past and future) on coastal systems.
