Short CV

Itxaso Ruiz graduated with a degree in Geological Sciences at the University of Barcelona and studied an international master in Marine Geosciences at the University of Bremen. She developed both her bachelor's and master's thesis in the field of paleoclimate (climate of the past) and got involved in several research projects at the University of Barcelona, the MARUM and AWI research centers, and the University of São Paulo.

For her PhD, she moved from developing paleoclimatic reconstructions to study the present-day context of climate change in rural Mediterranean areas, under the PhD program “Quaternary: Environmental Change and Human Ecological Footprint” from the University of the Basque Country. During that time, she had the opportunity to collaborate in both national and international projects of the UNCCD, FAO, and IHOBE organizations, and the University of Nagaoka.

Currently, she keeps exploring the synergies that arise among the implementation of sustainable land management practices and the climate, and the effects of past land-use changes in the regional environment. Her aim is to inform stakeholders about key actions to better address desertification, land degradation, climate change adaptation and mitigation in the Mediterranean Basin.
