My research is focused in the areas of paleoclimatology and paleoceanography with emphasis on past climate reconstruction during Quaternary. Through a multiproxy approach, my studies aim to understanding atmospheric and oceanographic responses to climate forcings and feedbacks on shorts to long time scales. I have performed studies based on micropaleontology and inorganic geochemistry in marine sediment of the Gulf of Lions (Northwesterm Mediterranean Sea) for evaluating the orbital impact on both the environmental conditions and sea level changes. At present, we are working with alkenone-based SST proxy in the Alboran Sea (ODP 977). This record covers the past 1.7 Myr SST variability with high-resolution (around 300 years), being the first of this nature from the Northern Hemisphere.
