I am an oceanographer interested in understanding, describing and modeling physical and biological interactions, in particular, the influence of climate change over marine ecosystems. I am interested in understanding the role of ocean dynamics in the transport, pathways and connectivity of marine organisms at different spatial and temporal scales, using numerical modeling as a tool.
I received my PhD and M.S. degrees in Oceanography from the Center for Coastal Physical Oceanography (CCPO) - Ocean, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Department at Old Dominion University. Before I moved to the US I received a B.S. degree in Oceanography from the Catholic University of Valparaiso in Chile.
