SINOPSIS

 Ruth Cerezo-Mota es Oceanóloga egresada de la UABC con una Maestría en Oceanografía Física en el CICESE y doctorado en Ciencias Atmosféricas, Oceánicas y Planetarias de la Universidad de Oxford y miembro del SNI desde el 2012. Con más de 10 años de experiencia trabajando con modelos regionales climáticos, para el estudio de eventos extremos de precipitación y variabilidad interanual de lluvia. Estos estudios realizados en diferentes regiones pero principalmente a la región Noroeste de México (en el Monzón de Norteamérica). En septiembre de este año se incorporó como investigadora al LIPC con el programa de Cátedras CONACYT.

 

SUMMARY

Ruth Cerezo-Mota received her B.S. in Oceanography from the UABC,  has a M.S. in Physical Oceanography from the CICESE and got her Ph.D. in Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Sciences from the University of Oxford. She has been working with regional climate models (RCM) for more than 10 years. Her studies are focused on extreme events of precipitation and interannual variability of precipitation over different regions but mainly over the Northwest of Mexico. In September of this year she joined the LIPC as a Researcher.
