Claire completed a Bachelor of Science majoring in Physical Oceanography at UNSW in 2020 and is currently undertaking her honours through the Climate Change Research Centre at UNSW. Claire's main area of interest is extreme weather and climate events such as marine and terrestrial heatwaves. During my Bachelor, she came across the importance of good science communication, even more so when it comes to climate change. Claire hopes that furthering her studies in climate science will provide her with the information, credibility and tools to efficiently collaborate with other scientists, lay experts and the public.
