interTwin EEAB Member (LNEC)

Anabela Oliveira has an extensive experience in forecasting coastal dynamics for over 10 years. Her research combines computer science with coastal engineering to produce tools tailored to stakeholders needs in multiple areas such as flood early warning, emergency response to contamination events (oil spills, urban discharges,…) and analysis of CC impact or anthropogenic effects on the coast. For the last 5 years, she has been coordinating the development and application of OPENCoastS, an open source, on-demand forecast service with applications on all continents. The development of OPENCoastS has led to the concept of Coastal Digital Twins that she has proposed as part of her habilitation thesis.

Anabela has participate in over 50 international and national research projects covering estuaries and coasts dynamics, modeling and forecasting. She has published over 70 ISI-indexed papers and has an h-index of 25.
