ANA MARIA DURAN-QUESADA

 
 

I graduated in 2006 from the BSc in Physics Program at the University of Costa  Rica, then followed the courses of the Master Program in Atmospheric Sciences and worked at the School of Physics and the Center for Geophysical Research. In november 2007 I started the PhD Program on Applied Physics at the University of Vigo (Spain) under advising of Dr. Luis Gimeno Presa at the Environmental Physics Laboratory of the University of Vigo, where as a complement I have recently completed a MSc degree in Climate Sciences.
