Post Doctoral Project Scientist in Observational Physical Oceanogrpahy

Air-sea Interactions and Upper Ocean Processes; Physical Oceanography/Ocean Circulation

Current role in the field of ocean sciences: Post-doc

Area(s) of expertise within ocean sciences: I am specialized in observational physical oceanography. As a PhD student I work on in-situ observations (moorings, gliders, CTD, argo profiling floats) to produce a climatology of the mixed layer depth and of the upper ocean heat storage rate.

During my PhD, I also work on a newly dataset of 6 years of mooring time series to characterize the seasonal and Interannual variability of mixing and deep water masses associated to open-ocean deep convection.

I also collaborate in different multidisciplinary works with biogeochemist and biologist to characterize the impact of epiosdic events (cascading, storm, deep convection) on particulate transport and marine ecosystems.

I love working at sea. I participate to 7 oceanographic cruises in the Mediterranean Sea and in the North Atlantic. In November 2014, I started a 4-year postdoctoral position at the Scottish Association for Marine Science on the international Overturning in the Subpolar North Atlantic Program (OSNAP), where I support the planning and the execution of the UK mooring and glider programme and undertake scientific research with those observations in collaboration with national and international partners.

Interest in becoming a mentor: I am passionate about my work and I want to transmit this passion to the next generation of students. I would have been very please to be mentored when I was a undergraduate or graduate student but I didn’t have the opportunity.
