Miscellaneous Information:

Ricardo has a Ph.D. in Meteorology, M.Sc. in Physical Oceanography, and a BSc in Physics. He is a professor at the University of São Paulo’s Institute of Astronomy, Geophysics, and Atmospheric Sciences. He is experienced in numerical modeling of atmospheric and oceanic circulation, as well as meteo-oceanographic data analysis. He has more than 15 years of teaching and researching Synoptic and Applied Meteorology and its relations with Physical Oceanography, emphasizing shelf and coastal regions of Brazil. Some of his recent efforts include: (i) downscaling of atmospheric and oceanic circulation for the Western South Atlantic (including surface gravity waves) in order to study extreme marine events in this area; (ii) evaluation of coupled climate models for the Western South Atlantic for investigating regional climate change and (iii) analysis of in situ data collected in the Brazil-Malvinas Confluence region and assimilation of them into numerical models to investigate regional air-sea interactions.
