Andrea Corredor holds a bachelors degree in Physics from the Francisco José de Caldas District University (Bogotá, Colombia). Her Master of Science degree included emphasis in Oceanography at the University of Concepción (Chile), where she continued her studies for a doctorate in Oceanography.
Dr. Corredor’s research interests include the characterization of periodic phytoplankton cycles in eastern Pacific seaboard upwelling systems, validation of regional theoretical models to characterize the structure of various sizes of phytoplankton using remote (satellite) sensing data, the application and validation of regional algorithms based on the optical properties of phytoplankton, and the interaction and linkage between the physical forcing of sub- and meso-scale (e.g., eddies) within the structure of the phytoplankton community.
Andrea is also an active participant in the “Young Earth System Scientists” (YESS) community as a South American regional member. She has been given the opportunity to participate as part of this group of young scientists in the sixth cycle of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) for 2021.
As part of her postdoctoral research at the IDEAL Center, Andrea is studying the periodic cycles of phytoplankton in Chilean Patagonia and the Western Pacific sector of Antarctica, including the temporal variability of the phenological indices and their relationship to multiple environmental forcing agents during the period 1997-2018.

Dr. Höfer is a Biologist from the University of Oviedo, Spain, where he also completed a Master’s in Biology applied to the Sustainability of Natural Resources and a Doctorate in Biology. Furthermore, he is a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Marine and Limnological Sciences of the Universidad Austral de Chile.
Dr. Hofer’s primary research lines dealing with plankton cover: population ecology, spacio-temporal distributions, trophic ecology, flows of matter, pelagic-benthic coupling, and the characterization of the actual role played by salps and krill in the biogeochemical carbon cycle around the western Antarctic Peninsula.
He is currently collaborating with GEOMAR to understand glacial contributions of macro- and micronutrients and their potential effects on high-latitude plankton communities.

Mireia Mestre Martin
Dr. Mestre holds a PhD in Oceanography from the Universidad de Las Palmas in Gran Canaria and the Instituto de Ciencias del Mar in Barcelona and a Master’s Degree in Biological, Marine, and Environmental Sciences Research from the Universidad de Alicante (UA), where she also studied Biology and Oceanography.
Her research focuses on marine microbial ecology. Accordingly, her thesis concentrated on descriptions of prokaryotic diversity in the ocean and understanding the factors that control the structure of prokaryotic communities. Specifically, she analyzed pelagic prokaryotes (both free-living and those associated with particles) as well as their spatial and temporal variability on different scales.
Dr. Mestre is currently embarking on a line of work designed to study the role of microorganisms in the ecosystem processes of the Southern Ocean.
