I am an Assistant Project Scientist at the University of California Santa Cruz and NOAA’s Southwest Fisheries Science Center. I am originally from Spain, and I came to the U.S. for graduate school. I obtained my Ph.D from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2017. Previously, I received my M.S. in Physical Oceanography from the University of Cádiz, Spain. My research interests are in ocean modeling and large-scale circulation, specifically about subsurface ocean variability, large-scale changes in water masses and circulation, and how they affect upwelling systems.
