Ignacio Lopez Gomez
Resnick Graduate Research Fellow
Ignacio is a PhD student in environmental science and engineering working with Prof. Tapio Schneider. He holds a BS in aerospace engineering from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, and a MS in the same major from Institut Supérieur de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace. His research focuses on improving our ability to predict climate change through the development of more accurate computational climate models. At Caltech, his work aims to reduce cloud cover biases in climate models, which are the largest source of uncertainty in climate projections. His broader interests include understanding how ocean and atmosphere dynamics will change in a warmer climate.
