Susana Costas graduated in Marine Sciences (specialty: Geosciences) by the University of Vigo in 2000 where she started her research career and contributed for the future management of the Atlantic Islands of Galiza National Park. She initiated her PhD in 2002 in Coastal Geosciences at the University of Vigo, Spain, where she was granted with a fellowship founded by the University. After concluding her PhD, she was awarded with a Post-doctoral Fulbright Scholarship at the International Hurricane Research Center during 2007 (Florida International University, Miami, USA) and at Boston University (Boston, USA) during 2008. Following this postdoctoral stage, she was hired as research assistant within the Ciência Programme at UGM-National Laboratory of Energy and Geology, Portugal, between 2009 and 2013. The next step gave her the change to work as post-doctoral researcher in the frame of a European Research Project (Resilience-Increasing Strategies for Coasts-toolKIT - RISCKIT) at CIMA-University of Algarve, Portugal. In this frame, she focused on socio-economics and on the elaboration of disaster risk reduction (DRR) measures while working within a research team that accounts with some of the best European model developers. At present, she is working as research associate at CIMA exploring approaches to simulate the morphodynamics of beaches and dunes at longer time scales.
