My Publications


  • Mesoscale Dynamics Group at GFDL – Goals: To produce accurate numerical simulations of winter storms, cyclones and fronts in order to understand the role that planetary and synoptic scale parameters play in their generation and evolution. To better model the interaction of cyclones and fronts with orography. To clarify the effect of internal gravity waves on the larger-scale circulation and to improve their representation in numerical models. To develop more accurate and physically realistic numerical models for improve storm-scale simulations.
  • Atmospheric and Ocean Sciences Program at Princeton University – The Program is a cooperative effort between Princeton University and the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration(GFDL/NOAA). It is also part of a University-wide coalition dedicated to environmental studies. The Program is intended for students seeking the Ph.D. degree with the aim of pursuing careers in atmospheric and oceanic sciences.
  • Centro de Investigaciones para el Mar y la Atmosfera – CIMA (The Center for Sea and Atmosphere Research), supported by CONICET (Research Council for Science and Technology of Argentina), is an associated laboratory with the Department of Atmospheric Sciences of the University of Buenos Aires. It is located in the main campus of the University of Buenos Aires, close to the Department of Atmospheric Sciences, near Buenos Aires City.
