Ilana Wainer, SCOR Vice President (Scientific Committee for Ocean Research).
Ilana Wainer earned her Ph.D. from Pennsylvania State University. She is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Oceanography, at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Wainer’s research focuses on physical oceanography effects on climate and modeling these effects. Specifically, she has worked on modern and paleoclimate of the southeastern Brazilian shelf, Antarctic sea ice, effects of tropical variability on the North Atlantic Oscillation, and representation of Southern Ocean processes (subjection, glacial cycles, precipitation, ocean-atmosphere interactions) in global climate model. Wainer has served on the international steering committees of many national and international steering committees for climate and ocean observation programs.
