Technician
Technical Assistant at BC3 & Coordination Assistant at BC3-NUT Office

Patricia has a degree in Physics from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). During her studies she did an internship at the IzotzaLab investigating the visual stratigraphy of Antarctic ice cores, to later focus her final degree project on their polycrystalline structure. Currently, she is the Technical Assistant of the IzotzaLab. She is also the coordination assistant of the BC3–NUT Office. More information.

Nicolás Gonzalez

Junior researcher – PhD Student at BC3

Nicolas González investigates the effects of climate change on the cryosphere and is currently pursuing a PhD in glaciology at BC3. He graduated in geological sciences at the University of the Basque Country and earned a masters of science in Climate change and human footprint by the same institution. He is also an advanced technician in environmental chemistry by the chemistry and electronics school (Bilbao). Formerly, he worked as junior researcher at the Basque Centre for Materials (BCMaterials) developing pollutant-absorb materials like Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) and in the  Adirondack S.L. company (environmental analysis and testing) measuring quality parameters of water, soil and atmosphere.

María Santolaria-Otín

Associate Researcher at BC3

María Santolaria-Otín (Dr. Université Grenoble Alpes, France, 2019) graduated in Physics at the University of Zaragoza (Spain) and then pursued a Master of Meteorology (Universitat de Barcelona, Spain). Her master thesis tackled the teleconnection dynamics linking Siberian snow and Arctic sea ice with the North Atlantic Oscillation (Barcelona Supercomputing Centre;  BSC, Spain). She conducted a PhD at the ‘Institut des Géosciences de l’Environnement’ (IGE; Grenoble, France; ARCTIC-ERA Project) to study the representation of snow characteristics in climate models from CMIP (phase 5th and 6th). Her research interests are snow, permafrost, glaciology and climate dynamics from modeling to field work. More information.

Eñaut Izagirre

Guest Researcher at BC3

Eñaut graduated with a degree in Geography at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and studied a Master of Science in Antarctic Sciences with mention in Glaciology at the Universidad de Magallanes (Chile). He developed his master thesis in the field of geomorphology and past glacier fluctuations, together with collaborating in several scientific expeditions and research projects. In 2015, he was granted by National Geographic Society to conduct research in the southernmost unknown icefield in South America. Since 2018, he is back working on a PhD project at the UPV/EHU and BC3 with his main focus on the glaciers of Patagonia, but still linked to other glacier-related projects in the Pyrenees, Karakoram and Svalbard.

Gonzalo Morcillo

Guest Researcher at BC3

Gonzalo graduated in Environmental Sciences from the National University of Distance Education (UNED) of Spain. He is currently pursuing his PhD at the Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3), focusing his research on the combination of statistical and image analysis techniques in the interdisciplinary field of glaciology and climatology. He is also a free flight instructor and professional artist, especially dedicated to engraving.

Ion Ander Goikoetxea

Guest Researcher at BC3

Ion Ander is finishing the degree in Physics from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), performing his bachellor thesis at Izotzalab, focusing on a model of drifting icebergs through the North Atlantic in what’s known as Heinrich events. During his studies he did a summer internship at CIC Energigune, in the Thermal Energy Storage (TES) section. He also participated in the Erasmus mobility program, studying in the University of Oulu (Finland) for 4 months. As an extra, he also has a proffesional title in recreational diving, as a guide.
