Hi, I'm Stefan Riha. I'm a physical oceanographer with a focus on numerical modelling. I also have a background in math. Currently, my main interest is storm surge modelling.

If you are interested in hiring me as a (sub-) contractor, please contact me via email. I would also be happy to contribute to academic research projects related to storm surge risk assessment.

I was a PhD student at the School of Mathematics and Statistics in Sydney, where I worked on Neutral Density in Numerical Ocean Models with Trevor McDougall.

Before that, I studied the inter-basin exchange between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean at Centro de Oceanografia in Lisbon. PI: Álvaro Peliz

I also studied statistical Lagrangian properties of mesoscale transport as part of my MSc thesis at KlimaCampus in Hamburg. PI: Carsten Eden

During my BSc course I was given the opportunity to gain experience in numerical modelling while participating in the Island Wakes Project on Madeira (Portugal). PI: Rui Caldeira. BSc thesis supervisor: Anton Arnold at Vienna University of Technology.
