Associate Professor

School of Meteorology

Otavio Acevedo has joined OU and BLISS in 2023, after 20 years as a professor at Universidade Federal de Santa Maria, in Brazil. His researches activities are mainly in atmospheric boundary layer, covering a wide range of applications and tools. These include observational, modeling and theoretical studies. He is particularly interested in bringing together observations made at places with different surface characteristics to generalize processes and apply this knowledge to the improvement of turbulence representation in models.
