Maria Josefina OlascoagaMaria Josefina Olascoaga

Professor and Graduate Program Director, Applied Marine Physics, Department of Ocean Sciences

María J. Olascoaga is Professor of Ocean Sciences at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science of the University of Miami. She uses concepts from the theory of nonlinear dynamical systems to study transport and mixing processes in the ocean.

Olascoga was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she obtained a Licentiate in oceanography from Instituto Tecnológico de Buenos Aires (ITBA) in 1994. She then moved to Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico to pursue graduate education at Centro de Investigación Cient\'ifica y de Educación Superior de Ensenada (CICESE). There she obtained a MSc degree (1996) under the direction of Professor Julio Sheinbaum and an ScD degree (2001) in physical oceanography under the advise of the late Professor Pedro Ripa. She subsequently moved to Miami to pursue postdoctoral training at RSMAS. She joined the RSMAS faculty in 2006.

Philippe MironPhilippe Miron

Assistant Scientist, Department of Atmospheric Science

Philippe Miron is a Postdoctoral Associate at the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at RSMAS. His research focus on the analysis of drifters Lagrangian data in the Gulf of Mexico. This work is made possible by the Consortium for Advanced Research on Transport of Hydrocarbon in the Environment (CARTHE), funded by the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) following a competitive peer-review process for the purpose of studying the oil spill and its impact on the Gulf’s delicate ecosystems.
