I am Dr Emma Boland, a physical oceanographer, currently working at the British Antarctic Survey where I am part of the NERC-funded ORCHESTRA and SMURPHS projects. I am an expert in the dynamics of the Polar Oceans, and am currently focussed on adjoint modelling, an exciting new way of examining how climate models behave. 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.
