Dr. Joan Llort is a biogeochemical oceanographer dedicated to understanding the links between the blue ocean (temperature, salinity, density, currents) and the green ocean (plankton, organic matter, bacteria, fish). To this aim, he combines biogeochemical models with observations obtained with satellites, autonomous floats (BGC-Argo) and ship-based in-situ observations.
Joan holds a BSc on Fundamental Physics from the Universitat de Barcelona (Barcelona, Spain) and a PhD in Marine Biogeochemistry delivered by the Sorbonne Université (Paris, France), under the supervision of Dr. Marina Lévy. He has worked as a Research Fellow in LOCEAN-IPSL laboratory (Paris, France) and at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies at the University of Tasmania (Hobart, Australia). He has enjoyed research stays in the British Antarctic Survey (Cambridge, UK), at Southern Ocean Carbon & Climate Observatory (Capetown, South-Africa) and at the State Key Laboratory of Marine Science (Xiamen, China).
