  • Bio:

    João Miguel Leitão Janeiro

    Bsc. in Oceanography by the University of Algarve (Portugal) in 2004 and MSc. Water and Coastal Management by the Geophysical Institute (Bergen University, Norway) in 2006. Since then, his main pursuit has been to apply and develop numerical tools that help to extend our understanding on ocean and coastal processes, in order to optimize human activities and people welfare in coastal areas. After finishing his master, he worked as a modeller in the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency for two years and in 2009 started his PhD in Marine Sciences specialization in Numerical Modelling with the thesis: Development of an operation tool for oil spill forecast: Application to oil exposed regions. Throughout this time he was a Graduate student in Duke University (US) Integrated Marine Conservation Program, trainee in NOAA Coastal Services Centre, and member of the modelling team of the ARGOMARINE European project. Currently, he is developing research in the scope of WP8 -Societal benefits from observing/information systems - of H2020 project AtlantOS.

  • Interests:

    My professional goal is to continue developing technological solutions, based on numerical modelling, to improve our understanding of ocean and coastal processes while capacitate better management solutions for human activities in the sea and coastal regions.
