I am currently undertaking a Master of Earth Science, Atmospheric Science at the University of Melbourne. I have previously completed a Bachelor of Science at the University of Melbourne and an associated CLEX undergraduate research program in late 2019 on the droughts of Northern Victoria. Currently, my Master’s research is analysing trends and atmospheric patterns of Perth’s heatwaves using historical records that date back to the 19th century. The goal will be to better understand Perth’s heatwaves that lead to increased health risks for the region.
