Coastal Risks and Sea-Level Rise Research Group

Sara is licentiate in Marine Science within the specialty of Oceanography by the University of Vigo (Spain). She coursed the last year at the Universidad Autonomica de Baja California (Ensenada, Mexico), where she had her first contact with coastal engineering. Following this interest, Sara studied a Master’s degree at the University of Cantabria (Santander, Spain), including minors such as hydrodynamics, wave analysis and numerical modeling. She got a grant to do an internship in an engineering company in Brazil (“Coastal Planning and Engineering do Brasil”, Florianopolis, Brazil), where she developed her master’s thesis comprising wave downscaling and extreme wave analysis. In June 2014 she joined the CRSLR group to do her PhD, which focus on multivariate extreme water levels analysis and flooding risk assessment.
