Cristiano M. Chiessi holds a BSc (2001) in Geology from the Institute of Geosciences (IGc), University of São Paulo (USP), Brazil, a MSc (2004) in Geosciences (emphasis on Sedimentary Geology) from the IGc ? USP, and a PhD (2008) in Natural Sciences (emphasis on Paleoceanography and Paleoclimatology) from the University of Bremen, Germany. Between 2008 and 2009, he developed a post-doc research project in the fields of Paleoceanography and Paleoclimatology at the National Institute for Space Research (INPE). He is currently Assistant Professor (2) at the School of Arts, Sciences and Humanities from USP, as well as leader of the Paleoclimate subgroup of the Interdisciplinary Climate Investigation Center (INCLINE) from USP, external researcher of the Earth System Science Center (CCST) from INPE, and holds a research productivity scholarship (2) from the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq). He is a member of the Working Group 1 (Scientific basis of climate change) from the Brazilian Panel on Climate Change (PBMC) as well as a full member of the Palaeoclimate Commission (PALCOMM) from the International Union for Quaternary Research (INQUA). He is an expert in Geosciences, with special focus on Paleoceanography, Paleoclimatology and Climate Change, and the main research topics addressed by him are: abrupt climate change, thermohaline circulation, multidecadal climate variability, South American summer monsoon, carbonate and bulk sediment geochemistry, Late Quaternary, South America, and South Atlantic. During his career, he interacted with more than 130 researchers (ca. 60% of them are international researchers) through co-authorships in scientific manuscripts. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
