Raquel Negrete-Aranda received a PhD in Geology in 2008 and is an associate professor in the Geology Department at the Center for Scientific Research and Higher Education at Ensenada, Mexico, since 2015. Her research fields include magmatic evolution of volcanic systems; crustal thermal processes, heat and thermal energy transport mechanisms. In particular, she studies conductive and advective heat transfer in marine environments, like hydrothermal systems, rift systems and the oceanic thermal state. Furthermore, she seeks to understand how marine heat flow observations provide fundamental constraints on physical, chemical and biological processes occurring near and below the seafloor. She focuses on marine heat flow and the modelling of terrestrial processes that involve the thermal state of the lithosphere and its role in influencing geodynamics. Raquel Negrete-Aranda is member of the International Heat Flow Commission (IHFC) for the current period (2019-2023).
