Pablo studied Geography at the Universidad de Chile and has many years of experience carrying out glaciological research. During his university years, he focused on the application of satellite images to study the effect of volcanic activity on glaciers and climate change. While working at the university he taught principles of glaciology, geomorphology, and interpretation of satellite images. He arrived in Antarctica for the first time in 2009 during the International Polar Year as a research associate in a project aimed to better understand the relationships between ice shelves and glaciers. Nowadays he leads a team of geoscientists and mountaineers to study the dynamic of glaciers and the snowpack in the Central Andes. He also continues to keep an eye on space to observe the rapid changes of Antarctic glaciers and collaborates with Universities to sample snow and track black carbon particles in the Antarctic Peninsula.
