PhD researcher (D1) – Wageningen University & Research, The Netherlands
I am a PhD student in socio-hydrology with an academic background in agricultural sciences and environmental engineering. I focus on aspects of drought resilience by exploring what is the contribution of water-related human dimensions in drought events and impacts.
My role on 3DDD is to develop tools for different water managers informing about the adequacy of the practice of a given activity in a territory in relation to the availability, management and virtual transfers of water. This involves developing and testing indicators depicting the extent that the water uses in Northeastern Brazil are contributing to socioeconomic and environmental drought impacts. Such local and contextualized indicators aim to link water accounting data to tangible decision-making for water and drought managers.
