Wilma received her PhD from the University of Tasmania in 2019. For her thesis, she investigated the dynamics of the Antarctic Slope Front using an ice shelf-ocean model. She then worked as a postdoctoral fellow as part of the ARC Discovery Project on risks of rapid ocean warming at the Antarctic continental margin, where she examined the spatial and temporal variability of the circulation around Antarctica in an eddying global ocean model. In her current role at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes, Wilma is part of the modelling research program and involved in advancing Australia’s coupled modelling capabilities. She will use the coupled ocean-atmosphere model ACCESS-CM2, the Australian contributor to CMIP6, with a newly developed 0.25 degree ocean. Wilma also chairs the committee representing the Early Career Researchers at the ARC Centre for Excellence.
