Joining the Australian-German Climate and Energy College, a vibrant group of PhD students in fields related to climate and energy, has been a highlight of my studies.
I enjoy using palaeontology and sedimentology to reconstruct and understand the Earth’s past environments and climates.
A career in Earth Sciences has the potential to be incredibly diverse, and I am excited and motivated for the future.
In a warmer world with increasing amounts of thermodynamic energy, more water in the atmosphere and changes in the jet streams, you get greater instability and more frequent thunderstorms.
To think that the world is around 4.5 billion years old, and we as humans only live to a mere 80, blows my mind.
I have met so many like-minded people, travelled to unique places, gained heaps of knowledge, and made lifelong friendships.
My honours project looks at determining the origin of particular sediments in an interglacial sequence from the Neoproterozoic.
