Spotlight on a scientist

Have you recently published a paper, or done some cool fieldwork that you would like to share with the rest of the CLIVAR and Early Career Scientist community? We are offering you the space here to showcase your achievements and tell us a little bit about yourselves. All we ask is for a short piece (no more than 500 - 600 words) of article telling us who you are and what you have done.

If you are interested in taking part please email Jose Santos.
