Esteban started his PhD in September 2013 at the Climate Change Research Centre at the UNSW. His project focuses on the termination of El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events. In particular, the main aim of his PhD project is to identify the role of the southward wind shift in the seasonal phase locking of ENSO and whether this southward shift can account for the fact that La Niña events tend to persist for longer periods than El Niño events. He will be using simplified coupled models and data from the state-of-the-art CMIP5 climate models.

Esteban has a Bachelors degree in Physics and a Masters in Meteorology from University of Barcelona. When he finished his Masters project, Esteban got a research scholarship at Spanish Meteorological Agency in a project named Ensemble Prediction Systems Applied to Aeronautics. He has also worked as a technician of the tropospheric ozone level surveillance campaign during the (boreal) summer in 2010 and operated the Barcelona radiosounding station for more than three years.
