Masters Science (Oceanography)National Oceanography Centre, Southampton (2006). PhD, University of Tasmania / CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research (2014)


Dr Amelie Meyer completed her PhD in 2014 at the University of Tasmania focussing on circulation, mixing and internal waves in the Southern Ocean. Next Dr Meyer worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Norwegian Polar Institute in Tromsø (Norway), on changing ocean-ice interactions in the Arctic. She is currently a senior research fellow at the University of Tasmania, where she has been granted an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discover Early Career Researcher Award. Dr Meyer works on climate variability, polar science and ocean circulation to look at how and why polar regions are influenced by climate. To understand polar oceans, Dr Meyer collects scientific observations in the Arctic and Antarctic. This work has taken her to remote places where she has spent a total of 180-plus days working both on research ships and on the ice. Dr Meyer is a strong advocate for science communication and outreach. In 2019 she was awarded the Tasmanian Young Tall Poppy Science Award and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes Director’s Prize.
