Welcome to my web page!!!
I am a Senior Research Scientist at the Centre for Weather Prediction and Climate Studies (CPTEC).
I have previosly been a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Meteorology of the University of Reading in the U.K., where I have also obtained my PhD. Both my postdoctoral and PhD research have been linked to EU-funded projects (DEMETER and ENSEMBLES).
One of the aims of my PhD work was to improve the quality of probabilistic
rainfall seasonal forecasts for South America. In my postdoctoral work I developed statistical tools for analysing/exploring extreme climate
and weather events in gridded datasets.
After joining CPTEC in 2006 I worked in a number of research projects, including (EUROBRISA), which aims to improve seasonal forecasts in South America, a region where there is seasonal forecast skill and useful value.
