Paola Maria Castellano Ossa Fernandes

Postdoctoral Investigator at Oceanographic Institution-University of Sao Paulo- Brazil. PhD in Physical Oceanography, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. MSc in Physical Oceanography, Joint Program University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Institut de Ciències del Mar (ICM), CSIC, Spain. Field of interest: Inter-hemispheric transport, air-sea interaction, Large-scale circulation, Upper-ocean, Ocean modeling, Climate change.


Wlademir Jose de Santis Junior

Obtained a bachelor’s degree in meteorology from the University of Sao Paulo and a Master’s Degree also in Metereology, from the same institution, in 2008. Worked on developing a methodology for operational tracking and classification of extratropical and subtropical cyclones, based on their energy cycle properties. Participated in projects in oceanography, designing ocean forecast systems for meso and large scale circulation. Since 2013, is a Ph.D student at the University of Sao Paulo, in the Oceanographic Institute. The thesis theme concerns some aspects of the global thermohaline circulation variability and its relation to the South Atlantic circulation. Recently, joined a research project which goal is to investigate the relation between the Inter-tropical Convergence Zone position and the Meridional Overturning Circulation.)
