Researcher and Climate Deputy Theme Leader

University of New South Wales

Zoë currently works as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of New South Wales, having completed her PhD at the University of Exeter, UK in 2014. Her research involves finding abrupt changes or ‘tipping points’ in the Earth’s climate by looking for generic indicators that can precede tipping points. The ability to detect these indicators has clear implications for the interpretation of palaeoenvironmental datasets, as well as future projections of climate. Zoë is particularly interested in reconstructing past climate, looking at time periods when the Earth was even warmer than today. Zoë and the palaeoclimate team at UNSW communicate their findings through Intrepid Science (intrepidscience.com).
