    Bio:

    Clara Lázaro is an assistant professor at Faculty of Sciences, University of Porto (FCUP). She holds a Ph.D. in Surveying Engineering from FCUP (2008). She has expert-level knowledge of Satellite Altimetry applied to Oceanography. Currently, her research focuses on studying the sea level change and variability using Satellite Altimetry and on the development of methodologies for the computation of an improved atmospheric range corrections for Coastal Altimetry. Clara has been involved in many national and international research projects related to the development of the GNSS-derived Path Delay (GPD) methodology for the computation of the WTC for Satellite Altimetry. Most recently, she has been involved in the analysis of the relationship between teleconnection patterns and sea level and ocean circulation in the North Atlantic Ocean.
