Biography

I am a coastal scientist and started my academic career in Brazil, where I worked for 14 years before relocating to the UK in 2006. Although always centred on coastal change, my research became more interdisciplinary in the last 10 years. I studied oceanography in my undergraduate degree, when I discovered a passion for research, particularly related to coastal processes, beach morphology, and sediments. During my first years as a lecturer, I became interested in ‘soft’ solutions to manage beach erosion and decided to study beach nourishment in Florida for my MSc. I was invited to co-author two books about the coast of Florida, which incorporate results from my research. After resuming my position at the university in Brazil, my research focused on erosion hotspots on the southern coast of Brazil. Few years later, my doctorate combined shoreline change analysis and sediment transport fieldwork and modelling to better understand how erosion and accretion patterns vary in space and time and the influence of ENSO...

Research

Recent projects concern coastal vulnerability assessment in East Africa (AHRC/GCRF), the effects of climate change on beach response in Brazil (CAPES), practical applications of ecosystem-based management in coastal areas (Newton Funds and CAPES) and understanding the linkages between nearshore and beach changes in mixed sand and gravel coasts in the UK (NERC). Smaller projects involved citizen science and supporting the livelihoods of coastal women in East Africa.
