S. Costas graduated in Marine Sciences by the University of Vigo in 2000 where she started her career, contributing to the management of the Atlantic Islands of Galiza National Park. The candidate begun her PhD in 2002 at the University of Vigo. After successfully receiving her PhD, she was awarded a Post-doctoral Fulbright Scholarship at Florida International University (Miami, USA) during 2007, and at Boston University (Boston, USA) during 2008. Following this post-doctoral stage, she was hired as research assistant within the Ciência Programme at UGM-LNEG, Portugal, between 2009 and 2013. The candidate¿s research focussed on understanding coastal processes at different temporal and spatial scales, developing a wide perspective of the relevant processes when addressing coastal evolution. In 2014, she was hired as post-doc fellow within the European FP7 Project RISCKIT at CIMA-University of Algarve. She focused on socio-economics and disaster risk reduction, while working within a research team that included some of the best European model developers. In 2015, the candidate was awarded a Research Associate position within the IF-2014 National Program, hosted at the University of Algarve, to explore solutions to transform conceptual coastal evolution models into quantitative mechanisms. In December 2020 she was hired as Research Associate by CIMA-University of Algarve to contribute to the scientific area "Ocean and Coastal Dynamics". S. Costas has published her work in 49 manuscripts in international journals, 30 of which were published between 2016 and 2020, including top journals in earth sciences (e.g. Sci. Rep., Earth-Sci. Rev., Earth Planet. Sc. Lett.) with over 666 citations. 14 of these publications were led by the applicant, 39 with her participation as an independent researcher, and 6 were led by Post-doctoral researcher, PhD and MSc candidates under her supervision (Kombiadou, Gonzalez-Villanueva, Herrero). She has authored 1 book, edited a conference Field Guide and co-authored 4 book chapters. She has participated (oral and poster) in 67 international and national conferences. In addition, the candidate has organized two Summer Schools (CoastTools July 2015, June 2017) and co-organized a session at AGU Fall Meeting 2017 (EP22A: Beach- and Foredune- Ridge Systems). S. Costas was granted three projects as Principal Investigator (SCARPS, IF/01047, ENLACE) funded by a national agency (FCT), two of which within the last 5 years. These projects allowed starting a research group by hiring two research fellowships for Master and one technician. At present, her group is integrated by a post-doctoral researcher, one PhD student hired within ENLACE, a visiting post-doctoral fellow and a PhD student (SFRH/BD/144869/2019). In addition, she participates on four FCT projects and one LIFE ACTION GRANT (LIFE18 NAT/PT/000927). S. Costas has supervised 5 MSc Theses between 2020 and 2018, and she is currently supervising 1 PhD Thesis and co-supervising 2 PhD Theses.
