Eleanor is a physical geographer working on interdisciplinary projects examining coastal system response to climate variability. She investigates the physical impacts of climate stressors on the livelihoods of communities living within low-lying coastal areas in the South Pacific. Eleanor uses multiple exploratory tools including spatial modelling, remote sensing and field observation to research key drivers of coastal change. This requires innovative approaches to monitor, understand and confront the unprecedented changes unfolding in coastal environments. As an educator and mother of two, she is passionate about science outreach, inspiring and challenging students of all ages to think critically about human-environment interactions and promoting opportunities for women in science.
