Affiliation: NYU Abu Dhabi
Education: PhD, University of Barcelona
He received his PhD working on strategies of processing and spectral analysis of seismic data, to study dynamic processes in physical oceanography, receiving the dissertation awarded Cum Laude. He was working as a physical oceanographer at the Institute of Marine Science (ICM-CSIC) in Barcelona before joining NYUAD. Focus on mesoscale ocean dynamics, gathering data on observations of processes and structures as internal waves, instabilities, turbulence, and mixing with different kind of systems, as CTD, XCTD, XBT, ADCP, and Moorings among others; and the Multichannel Seismic (MCS) System, as a new oceanographic acoustic technique used in Seismic Oceanography (SO).
At the CSLC of NYUAD, his research work focuses on ocean dynamics in polar regions and interactions with ice shelves. He is particularly interested in characterizing the oceanic circulation in polar areas at multiple scales and in better understanding the mixing and diffusion processes and their temporal and spatial variability in Greenland fjords and several areas around Antarctica (Amundsen sea, Weddell sea, Peninsula).
Several courses and training about relevant and specific oceanographic equipment such as Glider Slocum, Vertical Measure Profiler, and Ice Profiling Sonar among others.
Bosiet Opito, VHF-SRC, and STCW codes for safety during the fieldwork. Certificate of competency for powerboats & RIB master.
