I graduated in oceanography from the University of São Paulo (Brazil) and defended an M.S. thesis in meteorology at the National Institute for Space Research (INPE, Brazil). I have experience with both ocean and atmospheric dynamics, air-sea gas exchange and ocean biogeochemical modeling. I completed my Ph.D. in 2019 from the MIT/WHOI Joint Program in Chemical Oceanography, using circulation, sea-ice and biogeochemical modeling as a toolto assess the effects of climate change and variability in the ecosystem and carbon cycle of the West Antarctic Peninsula and Gulf of Alaska. I am currently working with the Argo-BGC project in the California Current System (CCS), studying how models can inform best strategies for float deployments, and how Argo data can be used to improve model forcing.
