Federica Scolari

Federica is a Research Associate at the IWS at the University of Stuttgart. She earned her Bachelor (2017) and Master (2020) degrees in Environmental Engineering at the University of Padua, Italy, and Technical University of Munich, Germany, respectively. Her research interests embrace hydrodynamic modeling of complex hydraulic structures and model optimization.


Ricardo Barros

Ricardo is a data scientist with demonstrated mathematical and engineering skills. He conducted scientific studies with geospatial analysis and machine learning and contributed to advancing hydroinformatic tools. In hands of analytical thinking and the capacity to work well independently, Ricardo looks forward to developing innovative approaches and applying his acquired data skills on inspired projects.


Beatriz Negreiros

Beatriz is a doctoral researcher at the University of Stuttgart’s IWS and passionate about programmatic approaches. Her interests are on hydro-morphodynamic modeling and spatio-temporal analyses of rivers, which she leverages with fuzzy-based and data-driven methods, database management, web development, web scraping, and geospatial Python.


Sebastian Schwindt

Sebastian leads the hydro-morphological modeling group at the University of Stuttgart’s IWS. His background and core expertise are data acquisitions in combination with deterministic-statistic computational methods to derive data-driven insights from hydraulic research. Sebastian did his PhD at the Swiss Ecole Polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), and a postdoc with the Pasternack group at UC Davis.
