Research Field: Oceanography
Polar regions are particularly affected by climate change, and changes at the poles impact the rest of the world through rising sea levels due to melting ice and fluctuations in atmospheric features that drive changes in storm patterns. Dr Meyer studies ocean mixing, ocean-sea ice processes and climate system interactions in polar and sub-polar regions. Her recent research in the Arctic identified the increasing role of the ocean in sea ice decline.
Amelie’s passion for science communication is shown in her a large number of national and international radio and television interviews, participation in many documentaries, and the discussion of ocean and the climate at high school visits.
Dr Meyer completed her PhD at the University of Tasmania in 2014, and is currently a Research Fellow at the University of Tasmania.
