Marine Physics and Ocean Climate

Research Interests:

I am a Senior Research Scientist in satellite and physical oceanography.

I am interested in satellite remote sensing applications in relation to marine ecosystems variability. My research focuses on linking ocean physical and biological processes and addressing societal challenges such as climate change impacts on marine environment; combing observations, models and fish catch and using cutting-edge Machine Learning. My research case studies are in the Indian and Atlantic Oceans and the Mediterranean Sea.

I am also experienced in capacity building at an international level.
