Jordi Isern Fontanet

Jordi Isern i Fontanet holds a Degree in Physics from the University of Barcelona and a Doctorate in Applied Physics from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia. In 2003, he finished his doctoral thesis at the Marine Science Institute (CSIC) where he continued researching until 2005.

During 2005-2006 he worked in the Laboratoire de Physique des Océans (Ocean Physics Laboratory) (CNRS/IRD/UBO/Ifremer) in Brest, France, funded by a postdoctoral grant from the Ministry of Science and Innovation. Later, in 2006-2008 he worked in the Laboratoire d'Océanographie Spatiale (Ifremer), which is also in Brest, thanks to a Marie Curie (EIF) Grant under the 7th Framework Programme of the EU.

In 2009 he joined the Catalan Climate Science Institute (IC3) with a Ramón y Cajal contract co-financed by the Ministry of Science and Innovation. He is currently the head of the Dynamic Oceanography and Climate Group of the IC3. Jordi Isern i Fontanet has taken part in more than 15 national and international research projects and was the Principal Investigator in some of these.

He is an ANEP evaluator, has presented more than 30 contributions to congresses, mostly oral communications, and has published about 20 papers on oceanography and remote detection in peer-reviewed international journals and he is a reviewer for journals such as J. Geophys. Res., J. Phys. Ocean. or Geophys. Res. Lett. On the other hand, Jordi Isern i Fontanet currently lectures for the Master's degree in remote detection at the Centre for Ecological Research and Forestry Applications (CREAF) and the Autonomous University, Barcelona, and is supervising two doctoral theses. His most outstanding scientific contributions in the field of oceanography centre on the detection and analysis of ocean whirlpools at mesoscale and the reconstruction of the dynamics of the surface layers of the sea based on satellite observations.
