Welcome to my personal webpage!

Sejam bem vindos!


Hi! My name is Rafael Vergara Schiller, and Iím a graduate student at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, University of Miami (RSMAS - UM). I obtained a bachelor degree in Oceanography in 2004 at the Fundacao Universidade Federal do Rio Grande (FURG) in Rio Grande / Brasil, and started my PhD here at RSMAS in the Fall semester of 2004. My research interest is primarily on physical oceanography: coastal ocean circulation, mesoscale eddies and boundary current dynamics, interactions between coastal and deep ocean processes and transport of passive tracers. Iím currently studying the dynamics of the Mississippi River plume and its interactions with the offshore circulation of the Gulf of Mexico through high resolution numerical modeling.

This webpage is under construction. I hope you enjoy it!
