Santiago Botía started doing Amazon-related research in 2017 looking at the “Effect of fire emissions on the carbon cycle of the Amazon for 2010-2015” in his Master Thesis in Wageningen University, in The Netherlands. After finishing his master’s degree in Environmental Sciences, he moved to Jena in Germany and started a Ph.D. in 2018 at the MPI-BGC. During this time, he has studied methane and carbon dioxide at ATTO. His latest research shows the importance of the ATTO CO2 record to better understand processes at different temporal scales in the Amazon region.
