Ivana Cvijanovic

"la Caixa" Junior Leader Fellow Clima y salud

Ivana Cvijanovic's expertise is in atmospheric dynamics and large-scale atmospheric teleconnections, with a special focus on the impacts of Arctic sea-ice loss.

She holds a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Copenhagen and has worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford and at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, California.

Prior to ISGlobal, she was a Beatriu de Pinos fellow at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. She joins ISGlobal’s Climate and Health group as a research scientist and "la Caixa" Junior Leader fellow.

Líneas de investigación

  • Atmospheric impacts of Arctic sea ice-loss over regions where we didn't expect them
  • Linkages between high latitude and tropical climates
  • Tropical and subtropical future rainfall changes and their impacts on ecosystems and on society
