Christian got her PhD in Earth Sciences from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM, by its acronym in Spanish). She has studied tropical cyclones (TCs) and their response to interannual and decadal oscillations (ENSO, AMO and PDO) since she was a bachelor in Atmospheric Sciences. 

Dr. Joachim Ezeji received his PhD in 2013 on his thesis: ‘‘Increasing the resilience of water systems to extreme weather events’’ submitted to the School of Civil & Building Engineering, Loughborough University, United Kingdom .

Ella is a PhD student at the British Antarctic Survey and University of East Anglia in the UK. Her work focuses on the atmospheric processes that drive melt over the Larsen C ice shelf on the Antarctic Peninsula, a part of the world that is changing very rapidly. She is also passionate about communicating climate science clearly and spends lots of time producing films, blogs and podcasts to explain scientific concepts in an accessible and understandable way.

Dr. Nana Ama Browne Klutse is a Senior Research Scientist at the Ghana Space Science and Technology Institute of the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission. She is the Manager of the Remote Sensing and Climate Center at the Institute. She holds a PhD in Climatology from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. Her research focuses on climate modelling, climate impact assessments on society (health, energy, and gender).


Dr. Lawal completed his PhD program in Atmospheric Science with specialization in Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP), Seasonal Climate Prediction and Regional Climate Modeling at the Department of Environmental and Geographical Sciences, University of Cape Town ( Dr. Lawal is presently participating in the International Research Project funded by the United Kingdom’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) – the African Science for Weather Information and Forecasting Techniques (SWIFT:

Tierry holds Master in Science from Federal University of São Paulo, Brazil, 2017.
His areas of interest are the effects of ocean acidification and the physiological effects and genetics in marine animals, marine pollution, and governance of oceans. 
Currently, the research he is developing the articles of his thesis and has participated in courses on governance of the oceans has interests in scientific diplomacy, applied oceanography, and related subjects to develop his doctoral thesis.

she is a third-year Ph. D. student in meteorological Science at University of Buenos Aires. her doctoral thesis topic is about the seasonal forecast of extreme temperature events in Argentina northern of 40°S. her goal is to identify predictors of extreme temperature indices at seasonal scale, such as cold nights and warm days, to then apply several statistical models which will be evaluated to find those that show some ability to predict these extreme indices.

Career Objective: To be a competent and a motivated researcher who is aware and

responsive to the dynamic changes of the world. Paticularly, I aspire to take part in the ongoing research problems and challenges in the field of Oceanography.

Dr. Saleem Khan received his PhD in climate change sciences from the Centre for Climate Change and Adaptation Research, Anna University, Chennai. His PhD research focused on the impact of climate change–induced sea level rise on coastal ecosystems and their dependent human communities.
