Hi! I am a Natural Resources Engineer from Chile. I studied at University of Chile in Santiago and then moved to Boulder, Colorado in 2011 to pursue a PhD in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at University of Colorado Boulder.
At CU Boulder, I worked as a Research Assistant at NOAA/PSD with David Kingsmill as supervisor. My research involved the use of ground-based and airborne Doppler radar observations to analyze the airflow and precipitation structure associated with the coastal mountains of northern California to elucidate the association between the kinematic structure forced by the mountains and the precipitation enhancement offshore near the coast and along the coastal mountains.
Currently, I’m a postdoc researcher at the Department of Geophysics, University of Chile working in topics related to atmospheric rivers and extreme precipitation along the coast of central-south Chile.
I will be posting about my research, topics in atmospheric science, and programming. I hope what you find here can be useful to you. If so, please send me a message.
