Lara Perez's picture

I am a marine geophysicist focused in the analysis of oceanic basins and continental margins, including sedimentary processes and seismic stratigraphic analysis. I work with the interaction of tectonic, oceanographic and climatic processes and their evolution through time. Particularly, I study the bottom currents depositional and erosional features, sea-level oscillations, ice-stream-related depositional wedges, glacial morphology and ice sheets history. I have been working in both Antarctic and Arctic polar margins and deep basins, building a global perspective of the Cenozoic evolution of Earth.

At present, I am focused on the evolution of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet within the framework of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action Global Fellowship WAMSISE (H2020-MSCA-IF-GF-2017 no.: 792773): West Antarctic Margin Signatures of Ice Sheet Evolution. The main aim of this project is examine the record of ice sheet evolution on West Antarctic continental margins from middle Miocene to present and clarify the factors controlling the major sedimentary changes and their global implications.
