Studies

2012. Doctor of Philosophy in Physical Oceanography. Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canadá.

Research areas

- Coastal oceanography

- Estuaries

- Ocean-atmosphere interaction

- Proglacial environments

- Numerical modeling

Currently, I study the effects of Climate Change on atmosphere-ocean interaction and coastal processes. Within the scope of atmosphere-ocean interaction, I focus on large-scale processes, such as anticyclones and the spatial distribution of return period for extreme wave events, combining reanalysis and multiplatform satellite data. My research about coastal processes have been related to studies of circulation and sediment transport in fiords and glacial fjords. At present, I am studying the spatial and temporal variability of river plumes and coastal wetlands in central Chile.
