BIOGRAPHY

 

Ana María Durán develops an integrated framework to study weather and climate oriented to improve our understanding of dynamical and thermodynamical processes using observational records, remote sensing products, biogeochemical tracers and numerical modeling. Under the premise that a better comprehension of present day climate supports our understanding of past climate and leverage our endeavor in the interpretation of future climate projections.
