Ph.D. candidate
Oceanography at Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo, visiting Dalhousie University

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Oceanography at Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo (Brazil), and currently, I am a Visiting Graduate Research Student at Dalhousie University (SEAM Lab). Since my Oceanography B.Sc. (in Brazil), I have been working on different fields related to ocean mapping. I currently work on habitat mapping using different datasets with different spatial scales, exploring different approaches and classification tools. My Ph.D. research focuses on thoroughly analyzing and developing the use of MBES multispectral backscatter data for seabed classification, as well as determining the benefits and limitations of backscatter multifrequency data.

Areas of expertise:

seabed classification

MBES backscatter

underwater acoustic data analysis
