Prof. Marcelo Barreiro

Universidad de la República

Marcelo Barreiro is Full Professor at the Institute of Physics (IF), School of Sciences, Universidad de la Republica, Uruguay. At IF he is Head of the Atmospheric Sciences Department. Barreiro has a PhD in Physical Oceanography from Texas A&M University, USA. His research focuses on the understanding of climate variability and predictability from sub-seasonal to decadal time scales, and the role of the oceans in present and future climate. He is currently serving in the Climate Dynamics Panel of CLIVAR/WRCP and is lead author of the WG1 IPCC AR6 report.

Prof. Cristina Masoller​

Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya

Cristina Masoller is Professor of physics at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. She has more than 30 years of research and teaching experience, and has supervised 8 PhD thesis. Her expertise is in nonlinear dynamics, complex systems and data analysis. Specific research interests include novel methods for the analysis of climatological time series and measures for the classification and characterization of complex images. She has received various recognitions, including two ICREA Academia prizes (in 2009 and in 2015), awarded by the Catalan Institution of Research and Advanced Studies in recognition of excellence in research.

Dr. Álvaro Corral

Centre de Recerca Matemàtica

Álvaro Corral is a researcher at the Centre de Recerca Matematica (Barcelona), where he leads the Complex-Systems Group. He is also a member of the Barcelona Graduate School of Mathematics and the network, and is associated to the Mathematics Department of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

The research of Álvaro and co-authors has been addressed to describe, model, and try to predict the behavior of complex systems, paying special attention to natural hazards (earthquakes, hurricanes, rainfall, etc.) and communication systems (human language, music, etc.), as well as to the necessary statistical tools. The results of this research have been published in physics, geophysics, geology, and multidisciplinary-science journals, and have been communicated to society through newspapers, radio, TV, and the Internet Álvaro is also very interested in the training of young researchers, having organized several summer schools and other events in recent years.

Prof. Emilio Hernández-García

Instituto de Física Interdisciplinar y Sistemas Complejos - Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas

Emilio Hernández-García is CSIC Research Professor at the Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems (IFISC), a joint center of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) and the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) in Mallorca, Spain.

A physics graduate from the University of Barcelona, he got a PhD from UIB (1990). Previous positions as research associate at McGill University, Montreal and associate professor at UIB. His research covers many aspects of complex systems, statistical physics and nonlinear dynamics including ocean modelling and transport and network techniques in geosciences and climate. He is co-author of the book Networks in Climate (Cambridge, 2019).

Prof. Holger Kantz

Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems

Holger Kantz is head of the research group “Nonlinear Dynamics and Time Series Analysis”, an international team of about 10 scientists, at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden, Germany. His main scientific interest is to gain a fundamental understanding of temporal fluctuations in complex classical systems. This includes the study of physical mechanisms causing fluctuations, the study of simple but paradigmatic models, the development of methods for the statistical characterization of fluctuations, and the development and comparison of forecasting strategies. Atmospheric phenomena constitute the main field of testing and applying all this, with emphasis on extreme events and climate change.

Dr. Eberhard Faust​

Munich Re

Eberhard Faust is head of risk research on climate risks and natural hazards within the Corporate Underwriting division of Munich Re. The hazards and associated risk he is monitoring comprise foremost weather-related hazards which can be influenced by natural variability and anthropogenic change of the climate. He has (co-)authored numerous articles and papers, and served as a lead author for the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

He holds a diploma (M.Sc.) of Environmental Sciences (meteorology) from the University of Bayreuth, and also a doctorate (Ph.D.) of Humanities from the University of Heidelberg.
