Maria Pastor Mollà
Maria studied Marine Sciences at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain, and later specialized in Physical Oceanography at the Institut de Ciències del Mar in Barcelona. Her doctoral work looked at how the ocean circulation brings nutrients to fertilize the rich marine life of the northeast Atlantic, and why it can vary so much from one year to the next. She has also worked on research cruises across the North and equatorial Atlantic, sampling the waters to look for signs of recent climate change.
Maria joined the Geosciences Department at John Abbott in January 2013. She is on leave during the 2013-2014 academic year.
