- Ocean modelling and data assimilation
I am research engineer at the Department of Oceanografía Física i Tecnologíca del Institut de Cienciès del Mar (ICM-CSIC), in Barcelona for over 10 years. My experience concerns the analysis of data of physical parameters of the ocean such as salinity, temperature from in-situ measurements, numerical simulations or remote sensing. My specialty concerns the study of ocean salinity as well as the development / adaptation of validation methods for the latter. I have a doctorate in marine sciences since 2019 with eight articles published in scientific journals and more than 15 participations in international conferences. An other part of my job concerns oceangraphic campaigns to take in situ measurements (CTD, Niskin bottle, oceanographic instruments, etc), whether in Mediterranean coastal waters (PUDEM project) or open waters in the Atlantic Ocean (RETRO-EZR, SAGA projects).
Currently I am participating in the project "Development of a citizen monitoring program for the Barcelona waters: The Scientific Patí a Vela" founded by the 2019 Barcelona Science Plan. I am also part of the educational project "Petits Oceanografs". And on the other hand, I collaborate with the Barcelona Expert Center of the ICM.
