Georgia is an ecologist who is passionate about climate action, biodiversity conservation and science communication.
Georgia holds a Bachelor of Science (Biology, Hons I) from the University of Wollongong, Australia and has extensive research support experience across a variety of projects including invasive flora biology, forest ecology, biodiversity monitoring and interdisciplinary research. Georgia is currently a research officer with Securing Antarctica’s Environmental Future, a special research initiative funded by the Australian Research Council, in the Science Implementation node on beautiful Dharawal Country.
This role took her to Casey Station in East Antarctica in 2022 where she collected moss samples in ‘the Daintree of East Antarctica’, some of most extensive and well-developed moss beds in the region.
With a newfound excitement for sharing the magic of Antarctica with the world mingled with her love for planning events, Georgia and her colleagues from the University of Wollongong hosted a science-art exhibition focused on the future of Antarctica, aptly named Antarctic Futures. In 2022 Georgia was appointed as an ambassador for the Antarctic Science Foundation, which allowed Georgia to further her science communication in conversations with passengers on a fourteen-hour Antarctic overflight on New Year’s Eve 2022/2023.
