PhD researcher



Gabriela has been employed at IVM since October 2015. For the next years she will be working with the Horizon 2020 funded project IMPREX under the supervision of Prof. Jeroen Aerts and Dr Philip Ward. The IMPREX project aims to improve forecast skill of meteorological and hydrological extremes in Europe and their impacts, by applying dynamic model ensembles, process studies, new data assimilation techniques and high resolution modelling. Her work will focus on aspects of climate variability and extremes in flood and drought risk. Her main research goal is to develop a modelling framework, which enables the quantification of the effect of climate variability indices in flood and drought risk studies.

Before joining IVM, she completed a BSc. in Business Management (Recife, Brazil) and a MSc. in Environmental Management (Kiel, Germany). In 2015, Gabriela was a student researcher at the Technical University of Denmark where she developed her Master’s thesis titled “Assessment of Coastal and Urban Flooding Applying Extreme Value Analysis and Multivariate Statistical Techniques”. This project was aligned with the Water Sensitive Cities project, which aims at improving flood resilience of cities. Prior to that, she was a student assistant at the Coastal Risk and Sea-Level Rise Research Group at the University of Kiel, Germany. Her research focused on exploring the socio-economic impact of sea-level rise and storm surge in Croatia.
