I am a scientist with a very strong interest in glaciology, meteorology and climate. My current research focuses on Water Resources derived from snow and ice cover and its sensitivity to climate variations, especially in mountain regions. I have just completed a short term research project in that field applied to the Cordillera Blanca in the Peruvian Andes. Previously I have studied the potential effects of climate variability on the water resources of the Central Andes of Chile and Argentina, and in the Valais, in the Swiss Alps. In this last case we worked in cooperation with Hydroexploitation and the Grande Dixence.
