Ph.D./D.Sc. in physical oceanography at the Oceanographic Institute of the University of São Paulo (2014). I have experience with meso- and large-scale ocean dynamics; remote sensing; bio-physical and ocean-atmosphere interactions; numerical modelling with application to hydrodynamics and population ecology.

M.Sc. in physical oceanography at the Oceanographic Institute of the University of São Paulo (2008) and B.Sc. in physics at the Physics Institute of the University of São Paulo (2004). Specialist in observational oceanography at the NF/POGO Centre of Excellence Student Training at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (2009); and industrial business management assistant by training (1999).

I also have experience with data mining and analysis of large data sets, especially from satellite remote sensing. I have been a teaching assistant for undergraduate students and have also taught short courses on computer programming and numerical modelling with applications to water quality and on data analysis using open source software. I have been involved with public outreach, giving short lectures on ocean dynamics and guiding ecological tours for high school students.

Expertise: physical oceanography, observational oceanography, physics, data mining, spectral analysis, project management, computer programming (Python, Matlab, Visual Basic, PHP, HTML, JavaScript, SQL, FORTRAN, C), web design and web development.

comment How would I install Picasa 3.9?
I have just managed to install Picasa 3.9 in my Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS 64 bit machine. In order to be able to login to my Google account properly, I installed IE8 using the fast track suggested by @desgua with a slight modification: sudo apt-get install wine winetricks && cd ~/ && wget http://dl.google.com/picasa/picasa39-setup.exe && wine ~/picasa39-setup.exe && env WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.tmp winetricks ie8 && cp -r ~/.tmp/* ~/.wine/
