Research interests:

Climate dynamics, tropical meteorology and ocean-atmosphere interactions. Particularly, I am interested in understanding the influence of the atmospheric teleconnections on the Central America climate.

Career history:

Following my enthusiasm for science, I got my undergraduate studies in Atmospheric Science at the Universidad Veracruzana (2007-2011) in Mexico, where I had my first close up to the complex Atmosphere and its interactions with other components of the climate system. After I graduated, I joined to the Applied Climatology Group of the University as a research assistant from March 2011 to July 2012.

In August 2012 I started a MSc in Physical Oceanography at the Centre for Scientific Research and Higher Education at Ensenada (CICESE, Ensenada, México) with the main idea of acquiring knowledge about the oceanic processes in order to better understand the interactions between the ocean and the atmosphere. I graduated on February 2015 and since then to August 2016 I worked as a research assistant at the Department of Physical Oceanography. There, my research was focus on understanding of the underlying ocean-atmosphere factors governing the summer precipitation in Mexico and Central America.

It was then when I realized that fundamental studies on the interaction of global teleconnections with regional phenomena in Central America need to be addressed. This is how I decided to start my adventurous PhD journey in Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences at the University of Edinburgh in September 2016.

Active research projects:

Mechanisms of long-term climate variation over Central America: the role of atmospheric teleconnections.
