Marco Miani is working as Computational Support Specialist at the Climate and Atmosphere Research Center (CARE-C) of the Cyprus Institute (CyI). His research interests over the past years, earned both in public and private sector, orbit around numerical modelling of water waves, with his Thesis dealing with predictability of numerical wave models for assessing the available energy potential off the Portuguese coast.
His academic background is Physical Oceanography (Master of Science) earned at the University of Lisbon, in 2009. During and after his studies, he has been working on mathematical/numerical modelling (water waves) in both academic and commercial environments. After completing his master's degree, he has worked at the Coastal Research Station (island of Norderney, Germany), as Technical Research Assistant (University of Vienna), Project Engineer in the private sector (Antwerp, Belgium) as well as at the National Institute for hydraulic Engineering (Antwerp, Belgium). In addition to this, he has spent part of his career at the Joint Research Centre (Ispra, Italy) and the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering (RWTH - Aachen, Germany).
His daily duties include, the visualization, validation and post-processing of model-generated, large scale scientific climate data. Also, he is involved in the adaptation and expansion of the numerical code for simulating atmospheric tracer dispersion in the Mediterranean area (e.g., pollution, dust, radionuclides), using state of the art High-Performance Computing (HPC) facilities at the Cyprus Institute.
Since October 2023, he has started a PhD Program at the Cyprus Insitute in Environmental and Atmospheric Sciences. His research interest orbit around numerical atmospheric modelling, visualization of scientific data and marine heat waves (MHW).
