Professional abstract
I’m a professional Civil Engineer with a major and a M.Sc. in Water Resources & Environment from Universidad de Chile. My current main focus is physical limnology; aiming to understand processes with ecological implications, using a combination of field measurements and numerical modeling. I'm a PhD candidate, participating in the SNF-Sinergia project “High- Resolution Sensing of Aquatic Ecosystems with a Fleet of Small Underwater Robots”. My thesis is entitled "Lateral variability of mixing in stratified lakes and its ecological implications"
