About Me

I am Dr Emma Boland, a physical oceanographer, currently working at the British Antarctic Survey where I am using my expertise as an adjoint modeller in the NERC-funded CANARI and BIOPOLE projects. I was previously part of the ORCHESTRA project.  I am an expert in the dynamics of the Polar Oceans, and am currently focussed on adjoint modelling. Adjoint modelling is an exciting tool for examining how climate models behave, and can find connections that traditional approaches miss. I am also an experienced climate science communicator. Find out more about my backgroundmy research, take a look at my publications or see what I’m tweeting. Some of my recent media appearances can be listened to/viewed here.

Climate Science Engagement:

I am active in public engagement, regularly taking part in events such as the Cambridge Pint of Science Festival and talking to audiences that range from school children to other scientists on topics of climate science. I have media experience, as a previous British Science Association Media Fellow, as well as appearances on Channel 4 news, local radio and TV. I am fully DBS (CRB) checked.
