BSc in Earth Sciences (2009) at University of La Rochelle, France. MSc in physical oceanography, atmosphere and continental surface (2011), University Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France.

Eva is a research associate in marine extremes at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, University of Tasmania, under the National Environmental Science Program (NESP), Earth Systems and Climate Change (ESCC) Hub. Her research interests are in ocean and climate dynamics, ocean temperature extremes and their predictability. She also has a great interest in polar regional oceanography, in particular around Antarctica and the understanding of ocean-ice shelf interaction. Her current research focuses on ocean and climate dynamics, ocean surface temperature extremes and their potential predictability, with a specific focus for the Australian region. This research aims to understand the relationship of the extreme surface ocean temperatures, with the broader scale climate variability and understand their potential predictability at multi-year to decadal time scales.
