I have a degree in Geology and a master's degree in Geological Hazards from the University Complutense of Madrid. In 2019 I obtained my PhD in Environmental Sciences at the University of Geneva (Switzerland). My doctoral research focused on the study of climate drivers of rainfall-related hazards in the Peruvian Andes.

I am hosted by the CREAF to work on my own project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation entitled “Stable oxygen isotopes in tree rings from the tropical Andes: expanding paleoclimate proxies for hydro climate variability and extremes research in South America.” (P500PN_210763).

With this project I am developing a new dataset based on tree-ring proxies (i.e. tree-ring width and stable isotopes) from Andean species. The outputs of this project are intended to help in the understanding of (i) the spatiotemporal patterns of extreme hydroclimatic events over the Central Andres; and (ii) to understand how the South America Monsoon System and El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) interact during these extreme events in a long-term context. This newly developed dataset will be useful for extending the scarce and short instrumental climatic record currently available in the Central Andes
