Biography

Dr. Rubén Escribano (Chile, 1957) received his PhD in Oceanography from the University of Dalhousie, Canada in 1991.

He developed his postdoctoral research at the same institution where he started working on his main lines of research centered on marine zooplankton, pelagic food chains and population biology.

After six years abroad, Dr. Escribano returned to Chile and in 1999 he joined the Instituto de Investigación del Océano at Universidad de Antofagasta where he worked in plankton dynamics in the upwelling zone in the north of Chile. In 2002 he moves to Concepcion where he currently holds the position of Professor at the Department of Oceanography at the University of Concepcion.

He is the Head of the Doctoral Program in Oceanography of the University of Concepcion.

His most important contributions to oceanography are the generation of new knowledge on the ecology of marine plankton in Chile; developing models and methods for estimating secondary production in the ocean; the training of new researchers in biological oceanography in Chile; and international projection of biological oceanography that is developed in our country and in the eastern South Pacific.

Currently, Dr. Escribano is responsible for the Chilean office of Antares, a collaborative network between American countries for the study of the oceanographic and climatic variability of the continent. Antares is partially financed by the Interamerican Institute for Climate Change.

He is also responsible for the regional office in the eastern South Pacific of OBIS (Ocean Biogeographic Information System).
