IFISC People: Sara Cloux and Dhafer Ferchichi

July 6, 2023

We are glad to introduce Sara Cloux and Dhafer Ferchichi to the other IFISC members.

Sara Cloux completed her doctorate in Marine Sciences, Technologies, and Management at the University of Santiago de Compostela. Her research focused on the Lagrangian transport of marine debris into the ocean and the transport of moisture into the atmosphere. At IFISC she will work as a postdoctoral researcher with Cristóbal López, Emilio Hernández-García and Enrico Ser-Giacomi in the LAMARCA project. The  aim  of  this  project is  to  further  understand  the  role  of  oceanic  transport  in marine litter (microplastics and meso/macrolitter) dispersion and accumulation areas in the sea  surface,  along  the  water  column  and  over  the  seafloor. She will be working on this project for a year and a half.

Dhafer Ferchichi comes from the Pasteur Institute in Tunisia. At IFISC he will work together with Manuel Matias and Tomàs Sintes in the SEDIMENT project. This is an European Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan (PRTR) project dedicated to the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technologies for the analysis of satellite images in order to characterize the Posidonia meadows of the Balearic Islands, which are an ecosystem threatened by human activity, and its evolution over time. His research has focused on the design of agent-based models for the study of the emergence of collective behaviors, the spread of infectious diseases and, in general, the modeling of complex systems.
