Biography

I am a PhD student at the School of Ocean Sciences, specialising in numerical modelling and operational oceanography. I completed a BSc in Marine Science (main subject: Oceanography) at the University of Cádiz, Spain (2001-2006) and a Masters in Oceanology, main subject: Physical Oceanography (2007-2008). After my studies, I worked in the department of Applied Physics at the University of Cádiz on various topics (effect of internal waves on vertical mixing processes of the Alboran Sea, 2D and 3D modelling of internal waves in the Straight of Gibraltar, involved in many sea going expeditions, responsible for the design of mooring lines and data collection). In March 2013, I began my PhD studies at Bangor University.

Research Interests

My PhD project is funded by Fujitsu and HPC Wales. The title of my PhD is "Simulating the impacts of climate change on estuarine dynamics using an integrated catchment-to-coast model", and my supervisors are Dr Reza Hashemi, Dr Peter Robins, Dr Simon Neill and Prof. Colin Jago. The objective of the project is to develop an integrated model of an estuary (from catchment to coast) to predict the responses of the negative impacts of climate change on estuaries which can severely affect the natural environment and those communities who live there. I am working with hydrological models (TELEMAC, DELFT 3D) and with catchment models (SWAT, PDM) to develop this work initially in the Dyfi Estuary, and then to apply the methodology to contrasting estuarine systems.
