Ms Madi Rosevear is a UTAS PhD student supported by the Antarctic Gateway Partnership. She is an oceanographer focussing on the polar regions, with a specific interest in the processes that occur when the ocean encounters glacial ice. Madi is passionate about the role of field observations in furthering our understanding of Antarctica, and has taken part in field campaigns through both the Australian and New Zealand Antarctic Programs. Whilst her work is primarily motivated by understanding Antarctica’s response to a changing climate, Madi’s preoccupation with Antarctica is also fed by her love of exploring, and protecting, wilderness areas.
