Short CV

Itxaso Ruiz graduated with a degree in Geological Sciences at the University of Barcelona (Spain) and studied a Master of Science in Marine Geosciences at the University of Bremen (Germany). She developed both her bachelor and master thesis in the field of Paleoclimate. During those years she got involved in several research projects as a junior collaborator at the University of Barcelona, the research centers of MARUM- Zentrum für Marine Umweltwissenschaften and AWI- Alfred Wegener Institut für Polar und Meeresforschung (Germany) and the University of São Paulo (Brazil).

Following, she moved from developing paleoclimatic reconstructions to study the present-day context of climate change.

Currently, she is developing a PhD in the “Quaternary: Environmental Change and Human Ecological Footprint” programme from the University of the Basque Country. For this, she explores the synergies that arise among the potential of sustainable land management practices, the interactions of land use change - the regional climate, and the community drivers of climate change perception. The aim of this assessment is to inform policy-makers about key actions to better address desertification, land degradation, climate change adaptation and mitigation in the Mediterranean basin. Likewise, she has had the opportunity to collaborate in both national and international projects of the UNCCD, FAO and IHOBE organizations.
