I studied a BSc in Earth Sciences at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México with a specific interest in atmospheric and climate science.
In particular, I developed an interest in phenomena of the tropical atmosphere such as monsoons and tropical cyclones. I did an MRes at the University of Leeds with a thesis on tropical cyclone intensification as seen by the dropwindsonde observations.
Now, I am a student of Prof Lesley Gray and Dr. Scott Osprey on a project that aims to understand the imapact of stratospheric quasi-biennial oscillation on the tropical circulation and the american monsoon system.
Title: The american monsoon system: climate variability and teleconnections.
- Understanding model biases in current state-of-the-art general circulation models.
- Characterizing the onset and retreat of regional monsoons.
- Diagnosing the processes associated with the Midsummer drought of southern Mexico and Central America.
- Determining the role of the stratospheric quasi-biennial oscillation for the tropical circulation and the American monsoon system.
