    Brief CV

    Damia Gomis graduated in Physics at the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) in 1986, getting the final degree honors. He got a Ph.D. in Physics from the same university in 1990, also achieving the extraordinary doctorate prize. After a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Reading (England), in 1993 he won a position of Associate Professor at the Department of Physics of the UIB, and in 1998 he became part of the refounded IMEDEA (Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies, a joint center between UIB and CSIC). He is Professor in Physics of the Earth since 2011.

    Throughout his research career he has worked in the spatial objective analysis of oceanographic data and in the diagnosis of physical processes, particularly in terms of the interaction between physics and biology. Over the past decade his research has focused on two lines. The first is the dynamics of the Antarctic Ocean. The second and most important is the generation of marine climate scenarios for the XXI century, especially with reference to sea level. Within this line, his first studies focused on understanding the sea level variability observed in the Mediterranean Sea during the last decades. Then he started to work on the projections of sea level and other related variables (temperature, salinity and waves) along the XXI century under different climate change scenarios. Presently he continues his research on the physical basis of climate change and on its impacts, both from a physical perspective (as Head of the Sea Level and Climate research group, and from a multidisciplinary perspective (as Director of the UIB Interdisciplinary Laboratory on Climate Change,

    The described research has been carried out through the participation in 16 Spanish projects (Principal Investigator of 6 of them), about 30 special/integrated actions (IP of 15) and 12 European projects (IP in 2 and in 3 subcontracts), in addition to contracts with national and international agencies. The result of all this research has been about 85 international publications and about 20 national ones. DamiÓ Gomis has also presented over 275 conference papers.

    On the educational side DamiÓ Gomis has been teeching Degree and Master courses for about 25 years and has supervised 6 PhD theses. At present he is the Director of the Academic Commission of the PhD Program in Physics of the University of the Balearic Islands.

    Finally, DamiÓ Gomis has carried out different management activities as member of several national and international committees such as Future Earth or MedCLIVAR. He has also participated in several Evaluation Commissions in Spain and other countries, as well as for the European Union.
