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, entitled: “Paleoceanographic study from last 22 ky from the western Mediterranean sea” and “The imprint of the 8,2ka event on Sahel precipitation”.
- During those years she got involved in several research projects as 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 current 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 undertakes three main activities within the BC3, answering to the transdisciplinarity framework of this topic: a) modelling of climate change awareness, projections and strategies; b) assessment of the potential of sustainable land management practices to create synergies between addressing desertification, land degradation and drought, and climate change mitigation and adaptation; c) identification and quantification of the main drivers of land use change for the past few decades.
