Mr Fabio Alves Correa Alves

Visiting Researcher

School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (Faculty of Science and Engineering)

Role

Visiting Researcher

Supervisors: Dr. Martin Stokes and Dr. Sarah Boulton

Qualifications

Overview:

I'm a Geographer. I've master's degree in Remote Sensing at INPE in Brazil. I'm a PhD student from Brazil, but now I'm developing part of my research in the University of Plymouth, England. I've been working with neotectonics investigation in rivers and landforms in the Paraíba Basin, northeastern Brazil. To do that, I've been using several geological and remote sensing data, including digital elevation models and geomorphic indices. 

Education:

(2016-2020): PhD student in remote sensing at National Institute for Space Research (INPE) - Brazil

(2013-2015): Master's degree in Remote Sensing at INPE - Brazil

(2009-2013): Bachelor's degree in Physical Geography
