I am helping with the ice core drilling and other core processing and analysis tasks and general camp duties.

Career highlights

I am a glaciologist working with the ACE CRC, with a particular interest in high-resolution proxy records and how they can be used to determine variability in rainfall and temperature for periods before instrumental records. I’m also a keen science communicator with a particular interest in communicating the current facts of climate science for the general public and schools in regional and rural areas.
