Originally from Mexico City, I studied the Masters of Research in Climate and Atmospheric Science at the University of Leeds and a DPhil in Atmospheric Physics from the University of Oxford. My research interests focus on tropical climate dynamics.

Research interests:

  • Monsoon dynamics and predictability.
  • Tropical cyclone structure and forecasts. 
  • Stratosphere-Troposphere coupling in the Tropics.
