Claire is a PhD student at the Australian National University interested in the physics of the ocean near Antarctica and in the Southern Ocean. She completed a Bachelor of Philosophy at the ANU in 2021, where her Honours project investigated topographic hotspots of upwelling in the Southern Ocean and their physical mechanisms. She has also spent time at the University of Sydney researching eddy contributions to global ocean heat transport. In her PhD, she is studying ice-ocean interactions near Antarctica and their implementation in ocean models.
