A statistical funnel-based approach to assess spatial contributions to uncertainty in organic carbon flux attenuation.
In my thesis I developed a method to calculate sediment trap's statistical funnels considering uncertainties in ocean currents. From my statistical funnel study, I also developped a novel method to estimate the contributions of spatial variability in the traps’ catchment areas to the uncertainty in Martin’s “b-value” (which is the POC flux attenuation coefficient). Furthermore, I developed a method to spatially adjust Martin's b-value. Finally, I presented a case study showing that spatial variability can contribute up to 25% in the uncertainty in a b-value obtained from POC flux observation during the December 2017 COMICS I field campaign, near South Georgia.

Particularly interested in the Minimalism movement, with artists such as Sol LeWitt, Dan Falvin and Donald Judd.
New media art movements that explore the aesthetics of new technologies fascinate me. References in this domain are Ryoji Ikeda, John Maeda and Julien V3ga.
