Paula Camus is a Research Fellow in Physical Oceanography within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.

Dr Paula Camus has focused her research in marine climate characterization at different time scales required in coastal engineering (from short term forecast to very long-term including climate change). She has combined innovative mathematical tools and statistical methods, not previously applied in oceanography, with numerical models to generate historical databases of marine dynamics in coastal areas or to project wave climate. She has contributed to the first coordinated multivariate ensemble of 21st Century global wind-wave climate projections available (COWCLIP2.0). Paula has also developed novelty probabilistic and risk frameworks to assess climate change coastal impacts as erosion, coastal flooding, disruptions of port operations.
