Curriculum, Annual Report, Thesis: 
Current Position: 

Academic Researcher within the Physical Oceanography Unit, Faculty of Science, University of Malta.

Scientific Activity: 

Numerical simulations of water mixing, turbulent flows and renewals inside the Port of Barcelona and the Taranto Sea using Large Eddy Simulation (LES-COAST model) under particular forcing. Research includes the introduction of the free surface to the LES-COAST model to analyse also the effect of tides inside such harbours.
