GILLI GABRIELLA is a researcher at IA/the Physics Department of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. She was awarded a first degree in ASTRONOMY by the University of Padova (Italy) in 2005, a Master degree by the University of Granada (Spain) in 2008, and a PhD in Physics by the University of Granada in 2012. She is a member of IA since 2016.
Current research interests focus on the upper atmosphere of Venus and Mars through both data analysis and modelling, and on exoplanet atmosphere detection.
In particular she is investigating the high variability observed in the middle atmosphere of Venus and Mars and the impact of specific physical processes (e.g. (atmospheric wave progagation) to the transport of heat and constituents in the atmosphere of those planets.
In 2018 she has been awarded a Marie Curie Individual Fellowship (Call H2020-MSCA-IF-2017) to work on the project "Hot-TEA: Hot Terrestrial Exo-planet Atmospheres: preparing new generation instrument observations with a Global Climate Model”, funded by the European Community. She is currently working with 3D model simulations of extra-solar planet atmospheres,focusing on Venus-like planets to study how the planet’s atmosphere modify the observable and how to predict future observations with new generation upcoming instruments.
She is also co-PI of the project "P-TUGA, Planets – Towards Understanding their General Circulation Atmospheres”, call Portugal2020 Funded by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT).
She is member of the Portuguese Consortium of ESA mission ARIEL, and vice-chair of the Europlanet Society Spain-Portugal Regional Hub.
