Eugenia Gayó and Raúl O’Ryan develop their scientific work in the (CR) 2 within the research of Biogeochemistry and Human Dimensions, respectively.
From march 2016, the Centre for Climate and Resilience Research (CR) 2 incorporates two associated researchers to its team: Eugenia Gayó, biologist, doctor in biological sciences of the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile; and Raul O’Ryan, electrical engineer, doctor in economics of the University of Berkeley.
Gayó was an adjoint researcher from the Biogeochemistry research area at (CR)2. She has been focused on determining the impacts of hydroanomalies in prehistoric humans of northern Chile during the last 15,000 years.
O’Ryan is moving from (CR)2 National Advisory Panel to the Human Dimensions research area, to provide his expertise in Natural Resource and Environmental Economics. Currently, he directs the Energy Innovation Center at the University Adolfo Ibáñez.
Both researchers will contribute to the (CR)2 common scientific work around the Anthropocene, a new geological era determined by human action.
